Community Action Groups
Combining a delicious way to reduce food waste with a great excuse to bring a community together, DinnerTime is a celebration of food, family and friends. The idea is to reclaim food in your community by making and sharing a meal together, reducing the amount of food we throw away and maybe gaining a new skill along the way. Plus itâ€™s absolutely free!
The day is split into sections, with people free to come and go as they please:
Hunt & Gather
Bring food you don't know what to do with. This could be tins youâ€™ve had in the back of the cupboards for ages, spare vegetables, pulses, herbs and spices, left over apple crumble, etc. Generally, anything thatâ€™s edible and too good to throw out.
Lets get cooking!
Come and help prepare the meal, this is where the fun begins! Make something yourself, lead a group or simply give a helping hand. There is plenty of cooking equipment and DinnerTime chefs on hand to give advice. All ages and abilities welcome!
Sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour; taste new things, have a natter, meet new people. Any food left over can be either taken away (bring some Tupperware if you like), donated or, if all else fails, composted.
Relax after a hearty meal with a hand-picked film, or get a drink from the bar and carry on chatting.
