Copleston Community Cafe

Our volunteer-supported Community Cafe has been running since 2018.

During lockdown, we worked with local food outlets to offer a Real Meals delivery or collection from our centre to more than 50 households - collected, delivered and served by a team of volunteers.   

Beneficiaries include older centre participants, people referred by peer and partner organisation and others in the community who feel they would benefit from a meal and enjoy eating with others.

The Community Cafe is back every Wednesday with menus that alternate between meals cooked by: Copleston volunteers; Genet's Ethiopian Feast; Eats Shoots and Leaves;  Maria Mills of Fully Catered; and Nandine.

The Community Cafe offers

Sit-down meals and tea, coffee and cake 

Opportunities to volunteer

Culturally diverse meals provision cooked by volunteers and  local businesses

Cooking on a Budget Classes

Signposting to other opportunities and services

A delivery and collection service to local older people who are not able to get to the centre

We do ask for a contribution of £3 or £5 for our meals, but also understand that not everyone is able to meet the cost of a meal.
