Why we do what we do

Food Waste

One-third of food produced globally for us to eat is lost or wasted, which amounts to approximately 1.3 billion tonnes per year.

10 million tonnes of food and drink is wasted in UK each year, 60% of this could be avoided.

When we waste food we also waste land, water, diesel used in farming, packaging, energy to refrigerate and so much more.

Food Poverty

We want to rescue surplus and unsold food destined for landfill. We want to offer it to ALL members of our community.

There are NO prices in our cafe. We ask our customers to Pay As They Feel. This means we offer refreshments, light meals and snacks in return for donations of money, time or skills.

Our mission

Our mission is simple – to feed people, not landfill!!

It’s about inclusion, community and sustainability, all strong messages from the early ideals of the Garden City Movement.

We want an inclusive place for everyone in Letchworth to come to. Let’s tackle the issue of food waste together!
