Calling all Food Heroes!

  Posted on 6th March 2019

Come join our wonderful community meals!

Every month, a wonderful group of Community Food Champions have been delivering a community meal at various locations around the borough.  Using the most incredible surplus food from FareShare, we cook up an amazing meal full of goodness and invite the community in to eat, chat and enjoy!  There are crafts for the kids, music, friends to make and of course, a delicious meal – usually with some to take home too.

So far we’ve had the great fortune to have been hosted by the Clockhouse Community Centre and Seniors in Touch and Peabody in Thamesmead.  This month we’ll be setting up at Woolwich Common Community Centre and we’re looking for more volunteers to get involved!  The meal will be held on the 22nd March and we’ll be on site chopping and preparing from 9.30 to serve at about 12.30.  We’re looking for people to help set up, prepare food, meet and greet and generally help out.

Patreace, the wonderful cook said “Community meals are some awesome events not to be missed. It’s amazing to see the people sitting, eating and enjoying the meals.  This is an event I truly enjoy cooking for on a monthly basis ,which could not have happened without our volunteers dedication to helping out. Well done to us all, until next time!”

We would love to run these more regularly and move them around the borough, so if you have a venue or a group that you think would like to be involved, please do get in touch!
