Ema Wilkes is a woman who saw what her community needed and decided she wanted to help. Neo Community Café & Catering (www.neocommunitycafe.org.uk) was founded in 2013, starting as a small café in the heart of Leasowe offering healthy, nutritious food at a reasonable price as well as job and training opportunities. A small business determined to do their part to alleviate food poverty and excess waste.
Their efforts were soon recognised and they began to grow, offering their community assistance and support. The first food crisis bag was handed out in October of their founding year.
