The Abbey Community Café, in Belsize Road, will serve healthy meals from September 9 with some ingredients delivered from food waste charity The Felix Project.

Meals will cost £2 for adults and £1 children, with revenue going back into buying other ingredients, equipment and energy costs.

Sinead Parsons, project manager, said: “With 52.3 per cent of local children living in poverty, providing well-balanced and nutritious meals can be a real challenge.”

She added: “The aim is to create a friendly, welcoming space for people to come together and socialise.”

The cafe is open 11am-2pm every Saturday.
