"Cab cook, will cook"
Stuart Fraser wanted to make Broughton and Salford a better place for locals to live in. The trained chef grew up in Broughton and keeps the community close to his heart. “My motivation for doing it is to be one little piece of a group of people trying to make Broughton and Salford better.”
His idea, Sourced in Salford, began with a supper club. Every Friday they take over the Naz Community Hall in Broughton. They offer two-course meals for just £2, using potential food waste and Stuart’s culinary skills to cook restaurant-quality meals.
“That’s what Sourced in Salford is about, it’s about cheap food, it’s about food waste, it’s about bringing people together.”
But the Friday supper clubs are just part of what Sourced in Salford wants to become. Opening soon is the Salford Lifestyle Centre Cafe and Our Bar.
With the help of funding and support from UnLtd’s Spaces4Change, Stuart has secured a location inside the soon to open Salford Lifestyle Centre.
The cafe will serve a soup and sandwich meal-deal for just £2. The bar, like the rest of Sourced in Salford, is completely dry and will serve non-alcoholic drinks such as smoothies, juices and cocktails
