Foodies of Coalville and surrounding area – wanted for exciting challenge!


Century Theatre, Coalville

Thursday 13th October 2016

6pm – 8pm

The Hero Project CIC, delivering Coalville Heroes, with support from NWLDC are hosting an evening showing of a film and talk about how surplus food can be stopped from going into landfill and how it can be used to feed people instead.

The film was commissioned by Super Kitchen, founded by Marsha Smith this organisation uses supermarket surplus food and well supported network of volunteer kitchens to produce great community meals, at low cost, creating opportunities for people to eat socially and if they wish to volunteer, make friends and learn new skills.

We want to know if there is support in Coalville to launch this type of social eating network! This is not about replacing existing community meals – it’s about joining them all together to create a network and having access to this surplus food on offer.

We welcome you if you are a faith group, community centre, business, sports or interest group, we also welcome individuals who might like to help us set up this network and start serving low cost, social eating events across Coalville.

If you are interested in finding out more, please come along and meet Marsha, who has agreed to talk about her work.

In addition, we are also looking at how Coalville can #growlocal this idea is to support the surplus food supply with fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs. Grown by local people, organisations, businesses and groups in spaces around Coalville.
