The Trinity Rooms Hub is part of an international movement combatting both food inequality and food surplus. While some people struggle to buy food, others are throwing away their surplus because they can’t use it in time.
Our main porch has food donated mostly by local people and organisations. The food is available for anyone who wants it. If you can’t pay – take what you need and don’t fret. If you can afford to pay — take some and put a cash donation in the box in the porch, or donate online (see our Home page). Your generosity can help us keep the project going.
Monday to Friday 9am – 11am
Saturday 2.30 – 3.30pm
The Trinity Hub hosts a Freezer of Love, with frozen meals provided by a local organisation, The Long Table. The meals are freshly cooked, locally and ethically sourced: they include vegetarian, vegan and meaty dishes such as bean chilli, chicken curry, vegetable curry, mac cheese and cottage pie.
You can pay with cash, or by text, or donate via the Long Table website.
Each Saturday we collect surplus or unsold food from Stroud Farmers’ Market at the end of trading.
We have also set up a donations box for Farmers’ Market foods at the 4 Seasons Market shop in Threadneedle Street, so people can pay forward healthy fresh produce for those who may struggle to afford great local food.
We are grateful for the support of Stroud Farmers’ Market organisers and stallholders. A big thank you for all food donated by stallholders and customers. We really appreciate your generosity.
As a small part of making food available for all, we want to support people in growing their own food, even in a small way. During the growing season we aim to offer edible plants outside the porch (edible for humans or pollinating insects). These too are free, with donations appreciated but not essential. Availability will fluctuate.
If you want to offer edible plants or seedlings to the scheme, please speak to one of the people minding the porch.
