Delicious fresh local food was cooked and served to around 100 attendees for free, at the Community Feast, held at the Princess Gwenllian Centre in Kidwelly last night Friday (Nov 10).
The event was funded by CAVS and organised by the Carmarthenshire Food Network group with a mission of bringing together those enthusiasts and local producers with surplus, with those who would most appreciate and benefit from healthy, low priced or free, vegetables and fruit.
The meals were cooked by Coleg Sir Gar’s – Cook 24 – and a masterful job they made of it too. The food was fresh, colourful and vitamin packed with a choice of meat or vegetarian options.
We were invited to try the food that was on offer and it was delicious.
People were encouraged to take away food, and diners were assured any surplus food would be packaged up and provided to the team.
Feedback was requested from guests who were provided with marker pens to write their comments on the paper table coverings.
The comments will be considered and incorporated as the programme is rolled out. Our table was particularly keen that availability was made to those who were “time poor” for example in full or multiple part-time employment.
There was a unanimous vote of satisfaction for the evening and diners left the event happy and well fed. The consensus of opinion was that it should be highly recommended.
If you missed this first great even don’t worry. The next event will be on November 16th at 4pm in Y Cwtch Coffi, Newcastle Emlyn.
Late arrivals (e.g. returning home from work) can be accommodated, but booking is essential.
