The community chef visited the village hall today as part of the Wye Our Place project.

The idea was to talk through ideas about forming a social eating place in the village – aimed at reducing isolation and improving nutrition among the vulnerable.

Dave Martin summarised the main conclusions at the end of the meeting:

  • that similar pop-up cafe taster eventsĀ could be run at different locations in the village, aimed at reaching different groups
  • that particular attention should be focused on trying to attract those who are hardest to reach. Advertising should be directed at carers
  • that such events (and any subsequent permanent social eating venue) should aim for high quality and nutritious food

Dave and the Community Chef thanked two village organisations for their contributions to the event: the Wye Community Farm for its donation of beef and Ripple Farm Organics for its vegetables.

There were also presentations by Ed Martin from Produced in Kent, and Sally Harper from the Big Bite in Boughton Under Blean.
