Feast – Cooking and dining with homeless adults

Category: Cooking

Bring your creativity into the kitchen and help us transform surplus food into nutritious meals. Both seasoned and novice chefs are welcome!

FEAST With Us provides access to regular meals for people suffering food poverty. Not only are our meals delicious and nutritious, they are made from surplus foods that would otherwise have gone to waste.
In light of the pandemic we have not been able to bring everyone together to cook and eat in the friendly community setting we are used to, but the prevalence of food poverty has increased dramatically and we have changed our programming in order to keep tackling food poverty and food waste. This includes limiting the number of volunteers cooking so social distancing can be carried out, and operating a takeaway/delivery service.
As such, we are always in need of fantastic volunteers to help us collect food donations, cook and deliver meals!

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved as we currently run FEASTs from 5 different venues across London, Monday-Friday.
