Coronavirus Update – 1 September 2020
We are really pleased to welcome back our Footprints Community Cafe staff and customers! To ensure social distancing there will be limited inside seating and a takeaway service, with all of the delicious daily specials we’ve been missing. Plus we now have an outdoor seating area for our customers to enjoy the summer weather.
About Footprints Community Cafe
Our new Footprints Community Cafe opened in September 2019, inside the South Tees Community Bank on Redcar High Street. We are proud that this partnership forms the first Community Bank Cafe in the UK.
We are open Monday to Friday 10am – 2pm, offering fresh, healthy and affordable food in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. There is a breakfast and lunch menu or you can enjoy a delicious home-baked cake, scone or afternoon tea. We are happy to take telephone orders for collection by your organisation or workplace. If you’d prefer us to come to you, we can cater for large or smaller events at your venue, with a menu to suit your needs.
Kat (our Cafe Manager), Tanya (Assistant Manager) and their friendly team of volunteers offer everyone a warm welcome. You may recognise Kat, who was one of the stars of the BBC’s The Mighty Redcar, with her own inspirational story of making it from foodbank client to our Cafe Manager. So pop in and see us soon!
Pay it Forward Scheme
What really makes our cafe different is our innovative ‘Pay it Forward’ scheme, which allows our paying customers to buy a voucher for a drink or snack for someone who is unable to pay for themselves, for whatever reason. Our other Footprints in the Community projects and South Tees Community Bank will then distribute the vouchers, so that their clients can come along and enjoy a drink or snack in our cafe.
