Covid update for mid September

Covid update:

We are keeping an eye on the infection rate numbers locally and taking all the precautions as we work to provide a non-commercial, affordable / by donation space for people to meet safely, obtain healthy vegan food and access creative activities.

Our in-person community café and performance events:

Offering a safer, socially distanced and risk assessed space for people to meet and eat including our community cafés on Saturday 12-3pm with pay as you feel food. We are also opening some other days of the week for community café and pay-as-you-feel pantry, see our events section for details.

All events continue to be limited to parties no bigger than 4 and we manage arrival times, spacing and movement whilst you are here to minimise contact with our staff and folks not in your household or support bubble.

We are mask positive, although there is no legal requirement to wear a mask in a café or for our staff to wear masks, we encourage their use where possible and safe.

Our new downstairs space has more room, an extraction system to improve ventilation and we have enhanced cleaning and hand washing procedures in place, as well as hand sanitisers for your use.

Please check our events section for when the community café space is open.


We continue to offer food delivery and collection on a tiered pricing structure to give our community access to tasty, healthy, comforting food.

Our community pantry runs on Wednesdays 12-3 and Saturday 12-3 providing vegetarian and vegan groceries by optional donation.

Keeping you entertained at home

Guidance is still to avoid contact with people you do not live with, so we continue to support our folks in doing so by providing online and hybrid online/in person events.

Stay safe and well, everyone, we love you ❤️
