Pop up Cafe in Broomhall

13 Feb


February see’s the launch of community food project Blend’s pop up cafe in Longley and Broomhall. Running weekly on a Monday at the Longley 4 Greens community centre on Southey Avenue and on a Tuesday at the Broomhall Centre, Broomspring Lane, Broomhall, the cafés will be serving a range of hot and cold breakfasts and lunches to eat in or take away. The cafes will be using the best of local produce while taking inspiration from around the world for all their dishes. Dishes will range from chorizo and red pepper beans on toast and vegetable Laksa to bacon butties and cottage pie.

The cafes will also be providing training and practical experience for participants on Blend’s community café training programme. The training provides support to people looking for either paid employment or who want to volunteer in their local communities. Funded by the Big Lottery, the programme provides participants with a food hygiene training, 1 to 1 careers advice and practical experience of working in catering setting. Since beginning in January of this year, the programme is working with 20 Sheffield residents with plans to recruit more participants as the cafes expand. The income from the cafes will contribute to the ongoing running of Blend’s free employment and health and wellbeing activities. For more information on the cafes and the other activities Blend provides please visit www.blendcookeatshare.co.uk  ,  www.facebook.com/blendcookeatshare or call 07468417353 between 10 and 4 Monday to Friday.
