With such tasty produce growing right on our doorstep in our community garden, orchard and in the planters in town we are keen to get cooking! With a small kitchen prep area in our hub premises we will share our tips on eating well, using local produce and cooking affordable meals.
Two nights a week we serve up a community meal and are always looking for volunteers to help us gather up ingredients, prepare food or lend a hand with the dishes.
Thursdays 5-7pm Real Junk Food Meal
Every Thursday in the Community Hub we serve up a 3 course sit down meal for anyone in the community. There is no set cost, pay as you feel! For this meal we use 90% intercepted food, almost all donated or surplus food that would have otherwise gone to waste. We turn it into a delicious meal and hope to share ways to reduce food waste and ideas for using local produce.
Fridays 5-7pm Frank the Healthy Takeaway
Every Friday we have Frank the Healthy Takeaway – an alternative takeaway option FREE FOR KIDS (adults pay a donation if they can). Soup, a main course and a veggie option always available, sourced from local ingredients where possible.
We can help to provide REHIS Basic Food Hygiene training for interested volunteers.
Throughout the week we also distribute fresh vegetables from the community garden at the hub, as well as free bread and cakes, tinned goods and occasionally frozen meal portions. We love to share and accept food donations from residents and local businesses. If you have a business that you think might have surplus food to donate, get in touch!
