What will I be doing?

  • Volunteers will work together to devise and cook a three course meal for the community canteen guests.
  • Volunteers will then serve their creations to the community members attending the canteen. Once the meals have been served, all volunteers are invited to sit down and socialise with the guests.
  • Once the meals have been served, volunteers will then work together to clean up and pack away.

What impact will this have?

  • Volunteers will be actively engaging in a community experience and see the direct impact of their help.
  • Lots of our community guests are individuals dealing with social isolation so interacting and conversing with them, really lifts their spirits and they enjoy getting to meet new people.
  • By creating and cooking a meal using surplus fruits and vegetables, you are setting an example of the ways in which we can all reduce food waste but also the ways in which you can create exciting and innovative meals using "boring" and "regular" food items.
