Cheap food and food distribution in Helsinki parishes – summer 2021
The Church in Helsinki runs ecological Waste&Feast restaurants in various parts of the city. There you can get quality food on your plate for little money. While feasting on a delicious meal, you also reduce food waste and help young people with a job.
Now also Café Krypta, right under the Cathedral (entrance: Kirkkokatu 18 behind the Cathedral) has joined the Waste&Feast chain.
In July, we don't offer lunch (except in Café Krypta), but you are welcome to come for coffee, tea and delicacies.
