If you love food, enjoy spending time with family and want to learn about how you can eat more sustainably, then you will definitely want to join us for this year’s Reading annual celebration of locally grown and healthy food on Saturday 3 October. You can sign up now.
We can enjoy the day together (albeit from our own households) with recipe cards, online workshops, Kahoot quizzes and much, much more. We are even hoping to broadcast live from Forbury Gardens on the day to help connect us all.
Not only will we deliver exclusive town meal inspired recipe cards direct to your doorstep, there will also be a live cook-along to follow and surplus fruit and vegetables made available from our stall in Forbury for you to collect, take home and add to your town meal inspired recipes.
Our online workshops will feature topics including how to tackle food waste, sustainable food growing methods and climate change.
Sharon Fitton, Chair of Reading Town Meal Steering Group said, “While we can’t all be together in person this year, our aim is for everyone to still be able to join in and celebrate the local fresh produce of Reading. We can all join in by cooking a town meal inspired recipe from our own home and learn about how to lead a more sustainable lifestyle.”
If you would like to help and support the running of this year’s socially distanced town meal there are volunteer roles to suit everyone’s skill set, ranging from donating fruit and vegetables, delivering recipe cards to households, helping us to publicise the event and much more.
