Foodchain, a charity that helps and educates people who are HIV positive has opened their first Community Cafe in between Acton and Swinton Street on Gray’s Inn Road. It. is located inside the space that is known as The Chapel, a theatre bar that sadly tried and failed to run a few years ago in what is called Acorn House (the “NUJ” building).
According to staff of the charity, who have had a kitchen for training and catering next door on Swinton Street for many years and who are mostly volunteers, the cafe is open for now until September 2022 to cater for the public from 08.30 in the morning until early afternoon 14.00. Proceeds will go directly to support people with HIV. Opening times will then be reviewed again.
The cafe is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays only. Wednesday it is closed for training and other purposes.
WC1X.org asked if the prices of the “community cafe” will be “community prices” too, and received the answer that they would certainly aim to beat the high street chains nearby on price. What’s more, Foodchain’s specialism is the provision of and education on nutritious, balanced and healthy meals and food options that aim to support people with HIV, so expect healthy choices and potentially inspiring ideas and tastes to get your day started.
