Giving You Choice

The Fed Up Community Cafe is all about helping people. Whether it is a meal and a chat, signposting someone to get the professional help or training volunteers to get the confidence and skills to get a job; that’s what we love to do.

Sometimes that help is needed outside our normal operational hours, such as emergency food parcels from foodbanks or a bit of help with shopping.

Foodbanks are a lifeline for people who need that extra level of support, but we have found that quite often there are items in the food parcel that are not liked. It’s not as easy as going to a shop and picking the items you want or need… or is it?

We wanted to be able to help anyone needing food, the choice to choose their own items that they would eat in their household. Other foodbank organisations, although offering a great service, don’t offer the addition of choice to make their food packs up. The Fed Up Community Café is proud to announce that we are the first (that we know of) to offer this service online to help people who can’t get down to the café during our normal opening times. This is through the affordable shopping system costing £5 per week, where you can choose 20 items from the larder.

Our online system not only allows you to have the choice of what items you need, but also offers additional support in “Meal Packs”. These are packs that contain everything you need for the whole meal. This includes a recipe card to help you cook the items.

Have a look around our website and see what you think.

Please note that although this service is online, we still offer the same choice within the café during opening times for those that prefer not to use the online system.
