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.
