Feast – Cooking and dining with homeless adults

Feast – Cooking and dining with homeless adults
Category: Collectathon

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 ‘waste’ foods that would otherwise be thrown away and they are made for and by the community; volunteers and service-users alike. These special meals provide a platform for vulnerable adults to socialise, and eat a warm and healthy meal. On a weekly basis, volunteers are able to socialise and prepare meals with vulnerable adults from all walks of life. The intimate setting of a communal kitchen creates a family atmosphere and togetherness that is hard to replicate in other services offering meal provision. Volunteers and service-users are encouraged to befriend one another, share the space as equals, and dine together, as equals. 

We are always in need of day time volunteers who are able to collect the food! so if you are available during the day or know of anyone who is please let us know! The volunteers don’t need to bring anything special, although we can always do with Tupperware to put the left over food into.
