Come and enjoy a meal with your friends and neighbours

We know how important it is to create opportunities for communities to come together, so we regularly put on a lunch or dinner for around 50 local residents.

These community meals are either free or very low cost, with vegetarian options available. They’re a great way to catch up with friends and neighbours, and meet some new ones too.

I loved the food – but I loved the fact of being together even more.

Leave the food to us

Your meal will either be cooked by a group of clients during a teambuilding event, or by our chef and a team of volunteers. Either way, we can promise it’ll be delicious.
