Bristol Skipchen

Bristol Skipchen

Bristol Skipchen is a wonderful idea.

Intercept food that would otherwise go to waste, turn it into delicious meals, then pay-as-you-want.

You can give nothing, you can pay what you think it is worth or what you can afford, you can volunteer.

If no payment made, it is not classed as a loss, better to eat the food than it going to waste.

Bristol Skipchen is a far better idea than food banks.

An excellent example of the gift economy, collaborative commons.

We need more community ventures that treat people as people, not as zombie consumers.
