Friday Feast is the latest development in the work of the St Saviour's Community Project. We have been running a foodbank for over a year now, but we are still aware that many people struggle with finance and feeding their families.
So we have launched the Friday Feast, a weekly meal for individuals and families who are struggling in the context of poverty. Every Friday we provide a two course healthy meal. So far the menu has been shepherd's pie followed by a jam roly poly, another Friday we had sausages, vegetable & mash followed by chocolate cake and custard all home made. The meal cost £1 per adult and children eat free. Part of our aim is to help tackle child poverty, which we know is a real problem in our area. We hope that the meal will really make a difference to families in difficult times, but single people are also very welcome. We also hope that a spinoff from the event will be to help build community in the High Green area.
The meal is served in St Saviour's Church Hall on Mortomley Lane, next to the Ecclesfield Coucil Parish Offices. We are open on Fridays from 4.00pm or immediately after schools have finished. We eat at 5.00pm and we ask everyone to help wash and clear up at the end so that we can be all finished by 6.00pm.
We have brilliant kitchen team and we are very grateful to them for their voluntary work and commitment to the project.
All are welcome to the Friday Feast. We hope that this will make a real difference to people's lives in High Green.
