CUT-PRICE meals are on offer at a new community cafe.

Chance Community Centre in Sunderland is dishing up budget dinners to East End residents, alongside advice and activities.

Cook Kate Bryan runs the Community Cuisine cafe, which opens from 11.30am to 1.30pm.

The 29-year-old, who worked at Harley’s cafe in Sunderland city centre, said she wanted to find a way to get more people into the centre, which opened more than 20 years ago.

Kate, from Hendon, said: “I’ve volunteered in the centre for over a year and a half now.

“I pitched the idea and said we could deliver to people who couldn’t make it to us.”

Apart from Kate, the cafe and delivery service is run by volunteers, who take meals to people living within a mile radius of the centre in Rickaby Street.

Home-cooked dishes including curry, mince and roast dinners, plus a traditional pudding, cost just £3.

The money is ploughed back into the business. For information, call 567 0978.
