Working in conjunction with Cambridge Sustainable Food and Food Poverty Alliance, The EDGE café is proud to be one of the community food hubs set up in Cambridge City to ensure food reaches those who need it most. Details of other hubs can be found here.
FareShare and Neighbourly
The Edge Café are delighted to be working with FareShare and Neighbourly As part of their mission to cut down on food waste and to combat hunger, they redistribute good food destined for waste to charities and community groups who turn it into nutritional meals for vulnerable people.
We pick up food from designated outlets every day, and we use as much of it as we can to populate our excellent specials menu. How much, and what food, varies on week-to-week. So our specials are always changing depending on what we receive. This helps us to keep our prices down. Anything that we don't use in the kitchen is free for customers or visitors to take.
This community food hub has been operating throughout the lockdown period, meaning we have been able to provide many people a day with food.
