March 2020


We are really sad to say, following on from the advice from the World Health Organisation, the government and the local authority we have made the decision to close our cafe Ark-T and stop all external catering from today (17/03/20) until it is deemed safe to reopen.

We believe this is the best thing to do to help keep our customers, members of staff , service users and volunteers safe and well and to slow down the spread of COVID 19.
We will really miss you all and hope that you all remain well.
We will spend the next few days putting together a strategy as to how Waste2Taste can continue to support the community in these difficult times.

Please keep in touch!

Our warmest love and friendship.
