Reading Town Meal

Saturday 3 October 2015

The biggest “picnic in the park” that Reading has ever seen will return to Forbury Gardens on Saturday 3 October 2015 and the local community is invited to get involved in this celebration of local sustainable food.

A delicious meal, cooked by Reading College catering students from produce grown and donated by local allotment holders and home growers will be served free to over 1,000 people.

Forbury Gardens will be filled with fun activities, workshops and local food producers. Community groups will set out their stalls and music from local bands will keep the tempo going all afternoon.

Read the write-up in the Reading Post of the 2013 meal.
