FoodCycle’s February Pop-Up. Pop down for music, food (waste) and wonky vegetable fun!

On Wednesday 11th February, FoodCycle Bristol, a charity aimed at tackling food waste and food poverty, will be hosting a Spring Pop-Up Restaurant, an evening guaranteed for delicious food and fun!

A tasty three course vegetarian meal made entirely of surplus food will be served at The Station Kitchen at the Old Fire Station on Silver Street. The food will be collected from local bakeries and supermarkets in Bristol by volunteers. It will then be whipped up to create a hearty and healthy meal. The evening will be jam packed with entertainment including live music and more. As usual B.Y.O.B so feel free to bring your own tipple.

Every Sunday FoodCycle serves delicious meals to those who attend Easton Community Centre in Bristol. We also work in partnership with other local organisations and welcome an eclectic mix of wonderful people into the extended dining room. Every week we collect surplus produce locally from Sainsbury’s and independent retailers and use these ingredients to prepare nutritious meals to be served to the community.

All proceeds from the Pop-Up event will go towards our main project in Easton.

So if you fancy popping down for music, food (waste) and wonky vegetable fun, tickets cost a minimum £6 and are available from:

FoodCycle is a national charity with regional hubs. Our vision is “no good food wasted”, combining the joint goals of reducing food waste and food poverty. We provide nutritious meals to vulnerable people at risk of food poverty, by collecting surplus food from supermarkets and shops, and transforming these ingredients into a healthy three course meal for free! Our meal serves 20-40 guests at Easton Community Centre. We also have community outreach and education projects, as well as a community garden.

FoodCycle Bristol is completely voluntary led; food is collected by bike from shops and transported to Easton, where a team of cooking volunteers cook the three course meal.
