Following the success of our first community feast in May, our Health Champions came back for a second time to feed the community once again.
The team met up on a weekly basis to test recipes and experiment with flavours from the Far East. They came up with an inspiring and delicious menu of unusual combinations and unexpected ingredients.
For 6 weeks the team tried out their new Thai recipes, tweaking and improving on them for the big event at the end of July. Big congratulations to the Health Champions for pulling off such a fantastic event!

A few words from our Health Champions
“The Community Feast was an excellent opportunity for me to get to know my local community and bring together an array of people from a variety of backgrounds, culture and religions… It was a daunting time having anxiety and the thought of going out to new places to meet new people, well that in itself was scary, but the staff are very friendly and also very knowledgeable. I explained this and they were all very understanding.
So the first time there, I met people in the same boat as me, I thought… ‘Ok that feels good, I’m not alone after all.’ On my second day, I met another lady who was able to give me advice… ‘Ok this is getting great now.’ So weeks go past and before I know I have made new friends and also learnt some fantastic new recipes to use at home with my family.
I have discovered a community that I didn’t know existed. A safe and happy place with no one judging you and a place to feel good and learn new skills. Thanks to the community feast I now have new friends for life and a better knowledge of healthy nutritious food, which has helped with my anxiety a great deal.
Thank you for taking the time to listen as to why this project is so important to us all, and personally.” Kelly Bannister
“Organising dishes, prepping, cooking, sharing & feasting all together was such an amazing experience that a week on I already miss and hope for more opportunities to carry on. As diverse a group as we were, we got on fabulously. No secret here, people not only need to eat but rejoice around food and what better barrier breaker than tasty healthy beautiful meals to share!” Jess Segree
