Street Feast started out with a team of volunteers, passionate about community. They thought what better way to bring community together than through food? Since then Street Feast has grown and flourished and now has a team of committed coordinators, advisors and volunteers who make Street Feast ‘happen’ every year on a completely voluntary basis.
Now in its 11th consecutive year, here are just some of the reasons Street Feast exists:
To celebrate our streets, cul-de-sacs, neighbourhoods & local communities.
To support and shine a light on the communities, networks and organisations that are holding everything together.
To have fun. To laugh. To stop for a moment. To open up and give-up our shyness for a day. It’s so much better with others…
To encourage more life on the streets, feel safer and reduce loneliness and isolation.
To share great local food, home-grown produce, cracking stories, bad jokes, practical skills, useful tools, different customs, common ground…
To show what can be achieved when a small group of neighbours come together and try something special
Organising your Feast will only take a few hours in total but starting early and getting organised in time, as well as getting some trusted helpers onboard is key!
