Free Cafe Groningen

Naamloos

This site is about the Free Cafe in Groningen. We are collecting food what otherwise would be thrown away, and cook a free meal with it. At the moment two times a week. It’s not for poor people,  all people are welcome, poor and rich!

The first Free Cafe is at Wednesday at BackBone050. The address is Travertijnstraat 12, Groningen. It’s in a former school building in Vinkhuizen (“De VInkenborgh”).  You can come from 18:00 for a free dinner, or  from 14:00 if you want to help to cook. Find it here on the map. For a while it has had temporary the name “Restaurant Restant”.

The second Free Cafe is at  Sundays in Edanz . The address is van Oldebarneveltlaan 6, Groningen (near the Noorderstation). You can come from 18:00 for a free dinner, or  from 14:00 if you want to help to cook. Find it here on the map. There is also some Information on the site of Edanz. Before the name of the building was “Aletta Jacobshuis”.

There is also an initiative to build a new Free Cafe in the Stadspark in 2017, the name is “De Wandeling”. Here you can find more information. There is a Facebook for this initiative too.

Before, we had a Free Cafe at Tuin in de Stad at the Friesestraatweg, but there is no FreeCafe anymore. Tuin in de Stad has been moved to the Tarralaan, Westpark.

If you want to help collecting food you are welcome. Please ask at the dinner or call me. We also can use some products like oil, vinegar, onions.

There is also a Facebook page about the Free Cafe’s.

There is a mailinglist where we discuss and coördinate the Free Cafe at Backbone050 and at Edanz. If you like to join this mailinglist, please contact me.
