Shareouse Market (49 Carlisle Street, S4 7LJ) open Tuesday–Saturday 12-2pm as a pay-as-you-feel store.

They also run Fuel For School, an educational programme helping primary schools to take direct environmental action and make a positive change in the local community, and they offer catering for conferences, parties, weddings and events from 5 – 350 people, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Foodhall Café

Eyre Street Café, 121 Eyre St. S1 4QW

A reminder that Foodhall Café offers food that would have been thrown away, surplus donated by retailers, on a pay-as-you-feel basis. It is run by volunteers and encourages community engagement between the general public including students, homeless people, mental health groups, isolated people, people with addiction problems and people who need to access food.

You can help, whether by just visiting to eat and socialise, or maybe food preparation, or even playing the house piano.

The cafe opens Thursdays to Saturdays, there are also art workshops and reading groups, and some nights it becomes a DIY venue for fundraiser gigs.
