Help plan Reading Town Meal 2018

Coordination / Projects volunteers needed for Reading Town Meal

Reading Town Meal is a truly community-powered event. First held in 2011, so far there have been five fantastic ‘picnics in the park’ celebrating the delicious fruit and veg that is grown in Reading. All the food is donated by the wonderful growers and allotment holders around Reading, cooked by Reading College students, and served free in Forbury Gardens.

The Town meal is organised by a team of volunteers and we are looking for new members to join that team to help plan Reading Town Meal 2018.

No event planning experience needed just an energy and willingness to get involved. We are especially looking for in 2018 people to help with volunteer engagement and publicity.
