Foodhall is communal dining facility and Freecycle food network ran by students, grads and young people trailing out new ways of engaging with each other and the wider community through shared food. The Eyre street café is a prototype for a different kind of public space. A kitchen and café in the city centre where people are invited to Cook or dine communally in a pay as you feel basis. The menu changes day to day and the meals are accessible to all as the fridge is always stocked with food that may have otherwise been thrown away. The concept is holistic. The building might have otherwise been disused and the furniture has been reclaimed and upcycled.
The food is accessible to all yet the quality is high. In the past we have had Michelin star savoy trained chefs and some of the chefs at Sheffield’s top restaurants cooking. so come and enjoy a really delicious meal with us.
You can make a personal contribution by volunteering to cook for the city, donate some food or just come, eat and chat.
*We have also been developing a web app in which you can contact Sheffield locals to invite people for a communal meal in your own home(the beta is currently only available to Tuos students here).
