The Long Table
The Long Table in the Cotswolds is working to change the world through food. This small but mighty organisation fights loneliness, poverty and food insecurity across the Cotswolds.
They run a Pay It Forwards scheme at their restaurant in Stroud and supply a whole network of “freezers of love” across Gloucestershire, providing delicious, nutritious meals to people and families who can't afford to buy food.
Extract Coffee Roasters has been supporting The Long Table since 2020 and since then have raised £2200, enough to buy 338 meals for people in food insecurity and food poverty.
Extract also provides coffee equipment and barista training for the restaurant team at The Long Table.
