The Boileroom presents:
Trash Canteen x Halow Project Lunch
The Halow Project + Trash Canteen
Entry Requirements: All Ages
Join us for a seasonal lunch in collaboration with The Halow Project Cook and Grow Scheme.
We'll be cooking up a festive feast together; using produce grown from Halow Project's allotment, and surplus food donated from Waitrose Guildford.
We'll be announcing the menu nearer the time; do come along and join us for a pay-what-you-feel meal and help us raise money for the fantastic work that charity Halow Project do; and Trash Canteen.
halow aims to ensure that every young person with a learning disability has the same life experiences and chances as any other young person. The social activities programme provides meaningful activities which are designed to give our young people the chance to enjoy an active social life, make new friends, live independently and become part of their community.
Trash Canteen Community Kitchen is the latest community initiative from The Boileroom; with our funders Community Foundation for Surrey.
Utilising surplus food from our partners Waitrose and FairShare; fresh produce donated from allotment patches, and culinary know-how from Smokey Joe’s, we serve up delicious, healthy, pay-what- you-feel meals every day of the week for the hungry masses. Grab a bite in the surrounds of our community garden space.
What is Waste Food?
Waste food is a term which describes “any removal of food from the food supply chain which is or was at some point fit for human consumption, or which has spoiled or expired, mainly caused by economic behaviour, poor stock management or neglect.”
In laymen’s terms – foodstuff; which was edible but has gone to waste; thrown away or discarded unnecessarily.
This can happen in many different ways – the way the food is processed in a factory; or in retail in supermarkets and grocery stores when food has passed its sell by or best before date. Different companies have different policies to manage their food waste; and national campaigns like Love Food Hate Waste strive to raise awareness about food waste on domestic and commercial levels.

Trash Canteen is an inclusive, safe space for the whole community to utilise: learn new skills, socialise, and chow down on some delicious food.
