Please support SASS – Keep Swansea welcoming!
Matt’s Cafe is part of the Real Junk Food (TRJF) Project, a network of national and international cafes (both permanent and pop-ups) with one central objective: to intercept food waste destined for land fill and use it to feed people who need it, on a pay as you feel basis.
Matt’s Cafe is the first registered café on the TRJF network in Swansea.
It is based at Matthew’s House, High Street, Swansea, SA1 1LW More info at: http://matthewshouse.org.uk/matts-cafe/
The innovative pay as you feel concept encourages people to think about what that plate of food means to them, and value it in whatever way they can. By choosing not to segregate people based on financial circumstances these cafes can be funded, but in a manner that neither patronises those who need it most and empowers others to freely support it.
It provides the balance between the need for funding and the need for giving, but it does so in a very blended format – everyone is equal in being fed, it is up to the individual to pay what they feel.
Our three pillars:
- To reduce food waste
- To feed those with or without funds
- To provide opportunities for those who are long-term unemployed
Matt’s Cafe is holding a taster session on Monday February 27th between 12 and 4pm and more information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1841094242805520/
Asylum seekers and refugees are be welcome to attend the cafe and can pay what they can afford / what they feel the food is worth.
