Been 'n' gone

This gig's over but check out the calendar for the next one.

The Secret Kitchen Café was set up by Marsha Smith in 2011. The aim was to set up a café with no fixed menu and instead focus on making each meal a 'special' which had been freshly cooked with fresh ingredients on the day. Each dish was to be a tasty, vegetarian and wherever possible organic or locally-sourced meal

In the Spring of 2013 the Family Café was launched. A tea-time space where children and families can enjoy a tasty, homemade meal. There's no price-list. People enjoy a meal together in exchange for a donation – of money or time. Food is upcycled from supermarket surplus into a delicious meal that families and communities can share together.

At it's conclusion in April 2014, this 12 month pilot is expecting to have served or distributed 10,000 meals and saved 6 tonnes of food from land-fill. For a food bill of £800.

Marsha's audacious goal? To start a social eating movement that has its roots in Nottingham but which grows and develops across the UK.

Come and join us - it's going to be immense!
