Recycle food festival is Pie in Sky for East End caf�
A community caf� in London’s East End which recycles food surpluses that the catering industry would normally throw out is holding a festival on Friday to mark its first anniversary.
The FoodCycle charity’s Pie in the Sky caf� at the Bromley-by-Bow centre is holding an afternoon of food events with music, stalls and games from 2pm to 6pm.
Food treats will be on offer, made from surplus ingredients including a vegetarian barbeque.
The charity tackles food surplus and spare kitchen space to create meals for those at risk from food poverty or social isolation.
Most ingredients used at the caf� are surplus that would otherwise be wasted which the charity reclaims from local retailers and uses them for healthy meals at low prices, serving up to 50 meals a day. The caf� also runs healthy cooking classes.
