About the Café
The pay-as-you-feel café was set up in 2017 in response to the huge amount of perfectly good surplus food being thrown away by local supermarkets. In collaboration with local charity Aber Food Surplus a few volunteers from the church began using the surplus food to prepare delicious and nutritious meals for the local community. (There are currently 20 volunteers and between us we are cooking a meal twice a week for up to 35 people).
Our aim is to offer a warm, welcoming environment, including a hot and nutritious meal to people in our local community. Payment is on a pay-as-you-feel basis to ensure that no-one is excluded by being unable to pay.
If you are interested in volunteering with us please contact us (we follow a safer-recruiting policy and volunteers will need to be DBS-checked)
Both our churches in Aberystwyth and Lampeter are registered with the national Warm Hub Network and with Connect Ceredigion’s Warm Spaces project (link).
