The Magic Hat Cafe

The Magic Hat aims to tackle environmental and social injustice by upcycling edible food waste, providing meals for everyone and anyone.

The Magic Hat Cafe intercepts edible food that would otherwise be sent to landfill because it might be damaged, misshapen or surplus. The intercepted food is upcycled into delicious, nutritious meals and drinks and served to the public in various places across Newcastle, on a ‘Pay as You Feel’ donations basis.
