Hello From Andover!

NotJUST A Cafe

We are an environmentally conscious, ethical, and community minded cafe – Waste Warriors Assemble!

We are open for everyone to come grab a bargain meal and stop perfectly tasty healthy food from heading to landfill. Yes! That means even you can come.

This project is constantly developing, with lots of exciting new things on the horizon. If you would like to take part by sponsoring our project or donating all your pesky surplus, please get in touch via our email:

This is a cafe with a twist. We cook tasty, healthy, one pot meals with surplus ingredients saved from landfill. Not to mention the almighty jacket potato.

Why’s everything so cheap? Because we can. We are a non profit organisation, here to help save food from landfill and make the world a better place. We aren’t driven by profit. 

What happens when you eat with us? Your money goes straight back into getting more tasty surplus food sourced and cooked for our cafe. It also funds our kitchen at the back, which is bookable for parties and for people without access to kitchen facilities so they can cook their own food for their families with dignity..

That’s not all of it! This cafe also has outreach for the homeless community & people in temporary housing: serving hot nutritious meals.

Pretty good, eh?

What’s The Next Phase?

Glad you asked!

We have a spare room at the back which we have big, big plans for…

We are fundraising to convert it into a *Function Room*. This means it will be split into 2 sections:

  1. Storage. We are proud to have a Pet Food Bank. But Lordy Lordy, we are tripping over ourselves to host it. We need more room so we can help more people!
  2. A cosy kitchen/living room. Yes we know we already have a kitchen, and no we are not being greedy. This room can be used by people who don’t have access to kitchen facilities or a warm space, to cook for their families with dignity. It can also be used as a contact room for parents seeing their children. 

Your say matters! If you are an Andover & Surrounding Areas Resident please fill out this survey (in doing so you are confirming you are a resident of Andover, Hampshire, UK, & its surrounding areas).

Your feedback will be taken onboard during our plans <3
