Community Food Kitchen
The Bakehouse café kitchen is now open to serve our customers and community. We will offer a limited range of hot food to pick up/take away everyday.
For now this will be available for breakfast and lunch, from 10am -3pm, and if demands exists - evenings from 5 – 7 pm. Our menu will be simple and nutritious, and where possible utilising our local food supply.
The kitchen will be subsidised by the trading activities of the bakery and food market. Pricing will be on an ability to pay, so no one need go hungry.
At this time the kitchen is staffed by current and former Bakehouse kitchen staff. We will need volunteer support at some time. We will let you know when we are in need.
Please note that all of our packaging is either home compostable or biodegradable. We will take returns of packaging as situation develops or if people do not have their own facilities.
A daily soup, porridge or hot drink is available free of charge to any public servant working in the village, e.g Police, Nurses, Bus Drivers, Postie etc. Please let them know if they have come to serve you.
Local Food Delivery
As we individually and collectively move from reduced to restricted movement, time to put the next level of service in place.
Increasingly our focus is now on how to move local food from the producers to you, with the least possible contact or movement.
As best we can we are establishing food hub/customer pick up points located at or near our main producers around the local area. This will enable us to go and return daily/weekly as efficiently as we can. It will also maximise local food trading and give you the best choice of produce. We hope to offer this service in cooperation with Findhorn Village Store and Phoenix shop at Findhorn Park. You will be able to pay and order in a variety of formats.
From this weekend we can offer limited home delivery for our bakery and produce on the peninsula. This service will evolve as need/demand develop.
