News from: Reading Town Meal
Reading Town Meal is a vibrant, community-driven event unique to Reading, which has become an annual occasion at Forbury Gardens. They have just launched their Crowdfunder campaign with the target of raising around £2,000 for this year’s Town Meal and to secure the future of the community event.
Hundreds of home growers and allotment holders from across Reading donate their fresh produce, which is then turned into a delicious, healthy three course meal by Reading College catering students. The vegetarian meal aims to serve around 1,000 people for free in Forbury Gardens, and is open to the whole community.
Since 2011, there have been five fantastic Reading Town Meals. Even with the amazing volunteer input, the Town Meal still costs around £5,000 to stage. This year they have managed to secure some grant funding, but there is still £2,000 left to raise before the event.
Visit www.crowdfunder.co.uk/reading-town-meal-2019 to give any donation, big or small, to make sure this much-loved event continues to help create a Reading that has more opportunities to eat healthy, local, sustainable food.
