Today we went to the incredible @hornbeam_cafe and spoke to Project Coordinator Anne about their Pay-what-you-can Monday scheme. Not only do they make delicious lunch for their community, but also redistribute ingredients and fresh meals to local charities. We were blown away by their dedication to feeding people and can hopefully implement some of their amazing ideas at Brixton Pound. #communitycafe #sharefood #reducewaste

Chez has been volunteering on Monday afternoons since March. As part of our work training programme, he helps to process donated food, make lunch for customers, and clean down the kitchen. He is a superstar 💫💫 and said that coming in to work makes him feel happy and confident. It's people like Chez that make our cafe so vibrant and interesting. If you would like to know more about volunteering at the café, please drop in or email Sean at kitchen@brixtonpound.org #volunteering #worktraining #allabilities #givingback #communitycafe
