The food bank that centres around a shared meal, not dried food parcels

This week, we’ve been at Woodlands Community Garden, running a social media workshop to help them share their wellbeing stories online.

We love this video that they have produced about their pop-up cafe. It offers an alternative and complementary approach to standard food banks.  As well as providing a nutritious meal, the cafe brings people together as equals, to share in cooking and enjoying the food. People eat together, chat and learn from each other.

The cafe is full of smiles and the smell of delicious home-cooked food. And some of the ingredients are even grown in their own garden. It’s not a mental health service, but there’s no doubt that it improves mental wellbeing. We think it’s a story worth telling and we’re proud to support them.

If your project works to improve mental wellbeing, get in touch to see if we can offer you free support you to tell your stories online.
