London Pride Saturday 8th July 2017

Yes, we're already thinking about this year's Pride festival! Nothing is set yet except the date, but we're keen to make this year even bigger and better than the last. With this in mind, if you'd like to be part of a planning group to think about how we can accomplish this, we'd love to hear your thoughts!

You wouldn't have to commit much time, just maybe a meeting or two in the run up to the event to think of the best ways in which we can really promote, represent and celebrate The Food Chain and the services we provide.

If you're interested, drop Anna an email on volunteering@foodchain.org.uk.

Clerkenwell Festival

Date: 27 / 08 / 2017

Time: 12:00 - 17:30

Location: Spa Fields

Description: The Food Chain is hosting a cake stall at the Clerkenwell Festival on the August Bank Holiday Sunday. We need cake bakers and stall helpers between 1.30 - 6.30pm - email volunteering@foodchain.org.uk to sign up.

There will be various musical acts to entertain you throughout the day, as well as a rock n roll jumble sale, antiques and vintage stalls - and a bar! The location is at Spa Fields, off Skinner Street, EC1, just behind Exmouth Market.

Join us for as long or as little as you can, and help us raise some funds and soak up the atmosphere!

Drivers needed!

We sometimes need drivers to help us with food collections and ad-hoc pickups. At the moment, we collect food donations on a weekly and monthly basis from supermarkets local to our kitchen, and we also occasionally receive donations from third parties (food products, wine glasses, small furniture etc) that require a car to be collected. We have a couple of lovely volunteers who currently do this for us but it would be great to have a list of people who we could ask as and when required. Pickups generally need to happen during working hours, so if you have a car and would generally be able to help out at these times, please contact Peter on kitchen@foodchain.org.uk
