Community Cafe @ Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre
This Community Cafe in our Arts Centre in Walton uses surplus food from M&S amongst other local food providers and creates specials and daily soups and cakes.
This not for profit venture partly provides funds to keep our community arts centre afloat, but also offers free meals to those in need, a meeting place for local groups and charities, chatter and natter tables and free coffees and cakes to help people get out and about and also offers work placement to youngsters with special needs.
We opened in March 2019 and are feeling our way into new ventures, some more sucesful than others. We have tried offering free breakfasts during the school holidays and are lookng for more ways to support and engage with community groups.
The arts centre has declared a climate emergency and is hoping that 2020 will be the start of a decade of change and delivery when it comes to tackling the multiple and complicated issues surrounding climate change.
