OUR COMMUNITY MEAL
Every Wednesday from 12.30 to 14.00
Meet your old friends, make some new friends over a tasty and nutritious 3- course lunch! Free of charge but feel free to donate if you would like.
The menu changes each week, with a soup, main and pudding. There are always vegan-friendly options for each course, and our volunteers can accomodate most food allergies.
The community meal is run with the following aims:
- to provide a weekly wholesome and substantial nutritious meal accessible to all, but especially intended for those enduring food poverty, covered by donation from those who can afford it,
- to provide a warm environment and companionship, particularly for those in the Penicuik community affected by post-pandemic isolation,
- to provide an opportunity to work together with others in an all inclusive environment, assisting with food preparation and service,
- to reduce food waste through the promotion of seasonal produce and use of ingredients that would otherwise go to waste.
