The EDGE Café is proud to be the first (and founding) community food hub and community fridge set up in Cambridge City.

We are working in conjunction with Cambridge Sustainable Food,  Food Poverty Alliance,  FareShare and Neighbourly as part of their mission to combat hunger and cut down on food waste. Details of other food hubs in the Cambridge area founded as a result of the Covid pandemic can be found here.

Through FareShare and Neighbourly we are allocated daily quantities of food from all of the major supermarkets, and this is weighed and displayed for people to access each day from Monday to Saturday. How much, and what food, varies from day to day.

We encourage the community to use the food hub as a place to donate any unopened, in-date food they may have.

The Edge Cafe - Fareshare
FareShare The Edge Café are delighted to be working with FareShare. As part of their mission to cut down on food waste and to combat hunger, FareShare redistribute good food destined for waste to charities and community groups who turn it into nutritional meals for vulnerable people. We pick up food via FareShare every day, and we use as much of it as we can to populate our excellent specials menu. How much, and what food, varies on week-to-week. So our specials are always changing depending on what we receive. This helps us to keep our prices down. Anything that we don't use in the kitchen is free for customers or visitors to take. This community food hub has been operating throughout the lockdown period, meaning we have been able to provide many people a day with food. For more info about what FareShare do nationwide, you can get some details and statistics from their website.
