Cupboard Love Café pop up will serve up free lunches to Londoners for a day


If you're feeling a little strapped for cash, as the days stretch out until payday, we bring you good news. A pop up restaurant is hitting London next week serving up free lunches.

It's the PR brainchild of the brands Hellmann’s, Marmite and Knorr and the idea is to inspire Londoners to delve into their storecupboard at home and make something to eat from what they have already.

Motivated by survey findings that the public have on average just £28.26 in their bank account at the end of January, for one day the Cupboard Love Café will be serving up three dishes that they've calculated would cost you £1 to make.

  • Portobello mushroom coated in a Marmite glaze and stuffed with cream cheese and wilted spinach
  • Moroccan style fluffy couscous, topped with bacon, dried fruit and chickpea tagine flavoured with Knorr vegetable stock
  • Asian inspired tuna & Hellmann’s mayonnaise maki roll, with avocado, cucumber and a dash of Sriracha sauce
