We want to thank everyone that's taken part in Trash Canteen so far - we're on hiatus until we get our new kitchen partners in - we'll be back!

Trash Canteen Community Kitchen is the latest community initiative from The Boileroom; with funding from 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 will be serving up delicious, healthy, pay-what- you-feel meals (or food stamps) every day of the week to the hungry masses. Pick up a dish in the safe, green surrounds of our community garden.

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.
