Our café is the hub of The Porch. Healthy food eaten on a regular basis is a critical start to the improvement of the body and the mind. We provide nutritious low-priced meals twice a day, six days a week, all year round. We cook with our own organic produce, harvest donations and contributions from the local food bank.
Our two kitchens, café and food store have been awarded five stars by the Food Standards Agency. We offer members the chance to gain new skills by working in our kitchens in preparation for further training and employment opportunities.
Our café is also a vital social and activity space. We provide daily newspapers and board games. We have bingo nights and other social events. Sometimes we offer special meals cooked and provided by friends of The Porch and of course we celebrate Christmas.
