A new monthly vegan breakfast club has been launched in Sheffield city centre - with the aims of helping people to embrace plant based diet and be part of a community.
Co-working and event space Union Street held the first club event, which was so popular there were people queuing for pancakes, fruit platters, tofu scrambles and granola.
It was organised by Turning Earth, a Sheffield organisation concerned with health, happiness and sustainability. Founder Laura Von Nordheim
and her team prepare all the food by hand and serve it hot in a buffet format.
It is free to enter, with donations to keep the club running welcomed.
Laura said: “Union Street is a prime location for getting people together, sharing ideas and delicious, wholesome food.
“Union Street has supported Turning Earth in the past as a vegan pop up café, so we are very excited to be back with exciting new events such as The Vegan Breakfast Club and hopefully some vegan supper clubs and vegan cooking classes in the future.
“We’ve got lots of ideas for dealing with this amazing rise in vegan breakfast clubbers.”
People who would like to get involved in the other side of the kitchen can also volunteer to help serve it.
The next breakfast club is on Saturday February 24, from 10am until 2pm on a pay as you feel basis.
The breakfast club has benefitted from the cheap room hire available at Union Street.
The not-for-profit business is interested in launching activities in the city centre that promote community and wellbeing.
Aware that community-focused enterprises are not always flush with cash, founder of Union Street , Matt Hill, hires out the space at discounted rates to enable organisations to access rooms in the city centre.
There are pop up food traders there every day of the week.
