Our Team

2020 and beyond

In November 2020, a new team of voluntary directors took up the mantle as due to Covid-19 our outlook had to change.

YourCafe@THCC was taken on by new directors Amy Johnson, Lisa Maunder-Wood and Felicity Hardy (pictured).

We have a cafe serving tea, coffee and homemade cakes which operates on a “pay as you feel able” basis.

YourCafe – Luke’s Larder was taken on by Liz Davies, Sarah Daniel and Aniko Sheppard.

We also have an amazing army of volunteers!

Our History 

Est. 2015

Margaret Hattam and Margaret Hogg were inspired to start YourCafe in April 2015.

“We decided to set up YourCafe as we were both concerned about the issue of food waste in York and wanted to do something to reduce it,” says Margaret.

“We also wanted a project that would benefit the local community. For us, it’s about both tackling food waste and promoting community spirit.”
