Glasgow Community Café brings people together through food

Well Fed community cafe Glasgow

A new community café run by Glaswegian charity Well Fed Scotland is going from strength to strength in bringing local people together through food.


Well-Fed Scotland CIC is a new organisation that offers a wide range of activities to help bring the community together and offers a friendly place for local residents, both young and old, to interact and socialise.

Well-Fed receives a weekly supply of food from FareShare Glasgow, enabling them to save money on buying food and helping them to raise money to reinvest back into their community. Their services include holiday breakfast clubs and a free supper and homework club for children and young people, community buffets, homeless street work and Christmas dinners.

The charity also runs a community café, offering fresh, home cooked meals at very affordable prices, and any profit made is reinvested directly back into the local community.

Christopher Gray, Managing Director of Well-Fed Scotland says: “The café itself is perhaps our biggest achievement to date. Using food from FareShare Glasgow, we can offer high quality food for very low and affordable prices. This allows people of all means to be able to come together in a social setting and enjoy the company of others. The Well-Fed café feeds on average around 600 paying customers each week and unofficially offers a meal free of charge to anyone who appears to be in need.

“We have many more exciting and ambitious plans for measurable change in people’s lives, and this model is only possible thanks to our partnership FareShare.”
