Coalville Heroes present- #growlocal #eatsocial
Thu, October 13, 2016, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM BST
You are invited to a special showing of a film commissioned by Super Kitchen, the people who have stopped good food going in the bin and turned it into great meals for the community to share. Marsha Smith the creator of Super Kitchen will be there to talk about her work And that of her and of willing volunteers.
We are also showcasing plans for the Coalville Community Garden and other growing spaces ideas. We'd like you to tell us what would work and what ideas we should forget!
This event is for any individual, any group, any faith, any ethnicity, any ability, any age - all we ask is that you eat food and don't like to waste it!
The Big Picture is......
Is Coalville a community that could get behind a #growlocal campaign, growing fruit, veg, salad, herbs & flowers in private gardens, on the street corner, in a community garden, outside the shop or school, maybe workplace!
Is Coalville a community that thinks wasting food and money is to be avoided? Thinks eating with other people around you is a way to build a community, stop loneliness and isolation?
Is Coalville a community that could get behind an #eatsocial campaign, cooking supermarket surplus food, donated food and lovingly grown local produce? Ideas like 'meet at mine' ( why cook for one, invite a friend around) 'extra plate' ( take it to a friend or neighbour in need of a bit of care) 'Mansize' ( cookery & supper club for men living alone) they are a few ideas there could be lots more!
We are looking for volunteers who could use donated food to feed people under the Coalville Food Heroes #eatsocial banner.... Places like faith groups, community groups, groups of neighbours in a housing complex, students on tight budgets...
We want to work alongside existing providers of community services and support, so any support groups or carers can also get involved.
Just come along for the evening, have a bite to eat and watch the film, meet like minded people and be part of the team...
