      “Cutting food waste is a delicious way of saving money, helping to feed the world and protect the planet” Tristram Stuart

      Our latest project, the Community Fridge, is full of food that is just before/on or just past its best before date, that can be repurposed towards eradicating food poverty and waste. Surplus food is shared within the local community. Ours is part of the Hubbub Community Fridge Network.  So far 32 Community Fridges have been set up across the UK, helping thousands connect to their communities, whilst accessing nutritious food and reducing waste.

      The fridge is open to anyone to take whatever they would like.  Nothing has a price, people can pay what they want for any item or nothing at all. We’d like to think that those that are living in food poverty will have their items for free and everyone else will pay a reasonable amount within their budget, which will help fundraise for solar panels to power a 2nd fridge and freezer.  So far, we’ve had a few people that have kindly, clearly paid more than the value of the produce.

      Food donations are welcome: Items include bread, pastries, dips, hard cheeses, fresh fruit and vegetables – anything that is safe to eat and meets food hygiene standards. A list is available on request.

    1. Best Before Stall @ Next to Matalan and St Johns Church
      10:00 am – 2:00 pm

      Alongside our successful Saturday Produce Stall, a food rescue stall.

      BB_20.1.18_lo-res_IMG_3857The Best Before Stall stocks an ever-changing selection of packaged foods from spices to rices – via puddings, preserves, pasta, drinks, crisps, teas and chocolates. We source these foods from local shops as well as from a few thoughtful individuals. One thing all of these foods have in common is that they are all past their ‘best before’ date. They are perfectly OK and legal to be offered for sale. So come along, have a browse, choose your items and pay us what you feel is right. The stall is run in collaboration with the Best Before Project, ThisisRubbish and FRP. We are currently running this stall on the first and third Saturday of every month. We are starting to supply food to a group supporting Leytonstone street sleepers, as well as to the Christian Kitchen in Walthamstow, and to one of our stall volunteers who cooks meals for homeless people at the Ilford Salvation Army. If you’d like to volunteer with us, we might be able to hold it every Saturday. Stop the waste, stop the rot!

      Church Lane Community Garden is open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm, also Wednesdays, 11am-4pm. It’s on Harold Road, just past the children’s playground and the footbridge over the Central line. Come along to see what’s growing, admire our locally built pizza oven, solar dryer, apple press and amazing water butts.

      A few examples: mushroom growing, apple juicing, compost making, pruning, building a cold frame. Experienced or not, we welcome new people.

      Perhaps you’d like to volunteer? That would be fantastic, as our hard-working community garden team could always do with more help.

      The stall has been going since July 2011; it’s a partnership between Transition Leytonstone and local food growing cooperative OrganicLea. Definitely the best place in Leytonstone for seasonal organic and local fresh produce, it’s open every Saturday from 10am-3pm, sometimes a little bit later – if you’re lucky.Saturday Stall-a_31.10.15 The stall also features eggs from ex-battery rescued hens (very happy layers now), super organic veggie samosas (the best I’ve ever eaten), jams, chutneys, fruit juices and amazing locally baked bread – one slice will definitely satisfy you for a while! Also not to be missed: OrganicLea’s unusual mixed salad bags – the contents vary throughout the year, with brightly coloured edible flowers a summer trademark.

      Transition Leytonstone also provides stall volunteers, who enjoy a 20% discount on all produce. If you’re interested in regular or occasional volunteering, find out more from RoseMary, our volunteer coordinator.
