NotJUST A Café has secured a 15 year lease here!

We're opening a healthy nutritious one pot cafe here where Canto Gelato once was, with hot soups, casseroles, porridge, jacket potatoes smoothies and other one pot healthy dishes with a difference... we will be supporting our homeless communities with outreach/takeaway and running a pay it forward facility for this 7 days a week. We already work alongside the Bridge Café and supply food when we can - but there's still a gap for us to fit and we love to work alongside any other groups.

Our Community Matters

We miss seeing you since the old Save It closed due to the roof leaking bad enough for the building to have a prohibition notice put on it. It’s not the first time a damaged roof has temporarily closed a food project… but hey ho, we’re coming back and running it as a newly formed CIC not for profit and charity with the fabulous three directors Lea Daisy Beven Katie and Di, and bringing Alice, Claire, and Svetlana with us 🥰 and some of our other incredible volunteers.
The Café will be open to the public and sales will be fundraising for the community work we do to help people access hot meals, and opening up Andover to more healthy breakfast and lunch takeaway choices whilst also embracing food surplus and preventing food waste with other food establishments and retailers.

The TWIST... there's TWO kitchens!!!!
The back kitchen and dining area is a bookable COMMUNITY self catering facility for families in homeless situations and in temporary hotel accommodation with no cooking facilities. We support lots of families already in these circumstances with cold snacks and food that can be cooked with a kettle.
We also will be working closely with the Andover Cultural Forum to run topical events and continuing our Diversity For Dinner – Cultural Food Project.
