Pay-What-You-Can Community Cafe Coming Soon

July 2020


Thanks the generous supporters of our ongoing crowdfunding campaign, alongside the help we are receiving from the Bristol Food Union, Stokes Croft Food Project is delighted to announce the opening of a "Pay What You Can Community Cafe" on Monday 27th July at Jamaica Street Stores, 37-39 Jamaica Street, BS2 8JP.

We will continue to distribute free food to the hungry on Tuesdays and Sundays, but we will also be offering lunch to the whole community from 12-2pm, Monday to Friday.

We have chosen the Pay What You Can model to allow us to continue providing mouth watering and nutritious meals to the economically vulnerable, while expanding our offer in an inclusive and sustainable way. This project builds on the mutual aid principle that has allowed so many people in Bristol to make it through the pandemic. We don't need top down charity to 'help the needy' - we need strong, well fed and resilient communities that support one another.

Thank you for helping to make this vision a reality.

Covid precautions mean this will start as a take away service, but our long term vision is to develop this cafe into a shared eating space where everyone can sit and eat together. A space to provide the kind of affordable community hub that Stokes Croft really needs. We will also make an area of the cafe available as a food bank where people can donate or request groceries.

Are you hungry? Come down, get some lunch.

Cafe opening hours: 12-2pm Mon-Fri at Jamaica Street Stores, 37-39 Jamaica St, BS2 from Monday July 27
