Spare veggies and fruit needed for pay-what-you-can cafe

Are you part of an allotment that regularly has a glut of produce you can't use? Are you a fruit and veg shop that doesn't always need its stock? Or perhaps a keen gardener with a too-prosperous vegetable patch? If you have any green (or red, yellow or brown) stuff to spare, the Brixton Pound community cafe would love to hear from you. 

What is the Brixton Pound Cafe?

The Brixton Pound Cafe is a pay-what-you-can cafe on Atlantic Road, Brixton. Every day we craft delicious vegetarian and vegan meals from surplus donated food. Each week we save around 65kg of food from landfill. In doing so, we provide a community hub, amazing dishes and a way for everyone to pay what they can afford. At the moment, we just need a few more vegetables and fruits so that everyone can enjoy our healthy dishes. We're at 77 Atlantic Road, Brixton SW9 8PU. Please email madeleine@brixtonpound.org if you can help.
