Custom Folkestone C.I.C. is a hub for knowledge exchange, artistic exploration and research about food and food production systems. To date, Custom has primarily operated as a restaurant from our venue on Folkestone's Harbour Arm supporting a range of community activities (including our own community garden, the Locavore Garden, and time banking initiative Folkeshare), alongside an inspiring artistic programme (including our 2019 festival SOMETHING HELD IN THE MOUTHcurated by Madeleine Hodge). We take our work out into the wider Kent community, creating events on sites of production, allying our work with radical and thoughtful food producers and allowing us to really explore cycles of growth, consumption and waste and their relation to changing climate realities. We work closely with the Folkestone community, exploring its diversity through popular community meals (serving up to 120 people on a pay what feel basis) and the richness of its food and growing traditions through our ingredients bartering system.
