Food is a big part of the Dalston Solidarity Cafe.

As we call ourselves a cafe, inevitably, food and drinks have to be part of it somehow.

But we are not fans of cafes and restaurants and anything else in between. Not in the way they currently work in our society.

What we are, is closer to a communal kitchen where we try to save, rather than waste and turn the cooking experience into a collective feast.

In fact, we believe that our work with food starts even before we set foot in the Halkevi kitchen.


It would have been a bit silly of us not to acknowledge what happened on Saturday 14th May, wouldn’t it?

What we know and what you’re about to read is none other than a mosaic of information we put up together between social media, word of mouth and tarot readings since no one from the cafe was present at the event sadly.
