Castle Canteen/Monday FREE Meal

Castle Canteen/Monday FREE Meal

about

Every Monday at the Castle Canteen, local people get together for a freshly vegetarian lunch made with surplus fruit and vegetables.

Castle Canteen is a charity launched in 2016. Where everyone including students can enjoy a delicious hot meal for a suggested donation of JUST £1. Castle Canteen is open to anyone who needs a nice nourishing meal and a good chat. Maybe you’re not able to cook for yourself or perhaps feel a bit isolated. Whatever the reason, people can come together from all backgrounds and enjoy a delicious lunch; all cooked with food that would otherwise have gone to waste.

The fruit and veg for the Castle Canteen come from Ted’s Veg, a family farm in Lincolnshire which sells produce at Borough Market. They put aside any non-saleable but edible produce for charities to take. Every Monday morning, the Be Enriched volunteers arrive to see what’s available.The charity uses the money from donations to buy any basics they need such as flour, rice and eggs.The meals are all vegetarian. Some special Christmas lunches during December, usually with turkey provided by a local butcher.

Bring your own Tupperware. Don’t have any? That’s also alright. They have some containers available to take away.
