This year, we have concentrated our efforts on distributing surplus food to the local community, prioritising those in most need – find out more on The Mix Community Fridge page. Thanks to the generosity of your donations, the support of local supermarkets and distributors, and the amazing support of volunteers. Our Repair Cafe techs have been fixing up old laptops, to pass on to students needing a device to learn from home – we’re collecting again: more info here.

The Mix is a community space run by Sustainable Wantage, which aims to provide practical ways to live more sustainably and bring our local community together – read our story.
