Sharing food and chatting is at the heart of Squash.

Squash was founded in 2007 by artists Clare Owens and Becky Vipond who met in Liverpool in their twenties working as youth workers and bonded over a love of aubergine fritters and a shared passion for our vibrant L8 neighbourhood. Our commitment to working for social justice, our arts practice that explores food, the seasons and the environment, combined with an industrious love of growing and cooking good food, lead to further creative food manoeuvres across the city and beyond. Much of our food work flows from and through our garden spaces and award-winning community food business (shop & cafe) on Windsor Street.

In 2019 we were really honoured to win the BBC Food and Farming Best Shop award!
