A cafe that aims to cut down on the amount of food wasted by supermarkets, cafes and households will host its official launch tomorrow evening.

Second Helpings, based at Trinity Methodist Church in Barn Hill, Stamford is inviting the local community to its launch event at 6.30pm.

People can enjoy a ‘Pay As You Feel’ meal on the night made from ingredients donated to the cafe that otherwise would have been thrown away.

Local singer songwriter, Brooke Peverell will also be performing on the night, followed by the after dinner guest speaker, Adam Smith, the founder of the real Junk Food Movements.

George Hetherington presented the idea after seeing the success of The Real Junk Food Project, set up in Leeds by chef Smith.

The café is open to the public from midday to 3pm every Saturday at Trinity Methodist Church.

If you would like to attend the official launch tomorrow night, please contact George Hetherington for a ticket, e-mail georgehetherington2@gmail.com or telephone 01780 757439.
