Woodlands Community Garden Pop-Up Cafe launch crowd-funding appeal

By on May 12, 2015

Woodlands Community Garden are launching their Pop-Up Cafe crowd-funding event on Sunday, May 24 from 2-4pm.

The fundraising picnic is a chance to find out more about their Local Food Social Support Hub Project and to meet staff and volunteers from the community cafe. All proceeds will go to support the Pop-Up Cafe.

The Pop-Up Cafe offers an alternative model to most food banks, with a shared meal provided as part of their work to tackle food poverty and social isolation.

But the community cafe’s Big Lottery funding ends next month. And the crowd funding target of £15,000 would keep them going for a further year while also standing as match funding for grant applications.

Woodlands Community Garden say if they exceed the target then they can either keep the cafe going longer or look at options for running the cafe on more days.

For every £1 raised they estimate 95p will go to support frontline work. 

Find out more in the community garden a week on Sunday  and enjoy some delicious food – from 1-4pm. See the Woodlands Community Garden Pop-Up Cafe project on indiegogo and watch their film here
