Friday photo – creativity and community

IMG_20171012_121322565.jpg

I was delighted yesterday to be working form home – unusual for a Thursday – as this gave me the opportunity to go with a friend to the Real Junk Food Kitchen lunch that is part of the community work in our parish and part of a wider initiative https://trjfpbrum.com/.

I love the creativity of the project where those who are cooking see what food turns up and devise a menu from it. You can turn up and have a three course meal and pay what you feel or can afford. It was a wonderfully eclectic group there yesterday and the room was buzzing with chatter. The volunteers create a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere and the quality of the food is great! You also get the chance to buy some groceries that would otherwise be discarded by major supermarkets. I came home with avocados – a real treat! I also came away full of admiration for the volunteers who work so hard to make a hospitable community space where people can gather and be fed. It is such a blessing.
