We just love food! Eating together is such a good way of meeting people and building friendship. With this in mind we run a community kitchen that produces great food for our community cafe.
The kitchen is also used for cooking sessions for all ages who want to have a go at some good, basic, low cost, healthy meals.
The cafe serves anything from a full English breakfast, hot sandwiches and on certain days 2 course dinners. Our resident chef Toni, has now started to add meals such as shepherds pie, casseroles to the menu. The cafe is open on 9:30 am – 1:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The last order is taken at 12:30 pm.
If you are in need of a good meal but have no cash you are more than welcome to have it on us! If you like you can ‘sing for your supper’ or, if you prefer, you can do a small job for us if you are able. If you feel embarrassed to ask for this, please speak to Ian or Lynn who would be more than happy to help.
We are even growing our own food through a community garden initiative on The Quadrant. This article gives some insight.
Community allotment to breathe fresh life into dumping ground in north Hull
Land plagued by fly tipping is about to be turned into a community allotment
Mr Warelow said he has had his eye on the land for some time, with Councillor Joyce Korczak Fields helping bring his plan to fruition. In return for the land, Eternal Benefits will pay a peppercorn rent to the council. “It’s in a very poor state at the moment,” said Mr Warelow. “But we’ll soon get there. We’ll have security gate put up to hopefully stop the fly tipping.”
Cllr Korczak Fields said she is delighted to see the site – formerly used for housing – brought back to life to benefit the north Hull community. She said: “This land has been allowed to become full of rubbish, with over 3ft-high weeds”. The intention is to have a community allotment, growing vegetables to be given away free to local residents or for a very small charge to cover the cost of seeds, fertiliser etc. “By involving anyone who is interested, including our local young people, it is hoped we can stop this area being an eyesore.”
