Who will I help?

How well do you know your neighbours?

The Castle Canteen is one of the community canteens run by Be Enriched, a wonderful charity that aims to create spaces where everyone is welcome and where communities can bond. The canteen works with supermarkets, greengrocers and markets to redirect surplus food to cook up a hot meal for people who need it and for people who want to connect with others in their neighbourhood.

How will I help?

Your volunteering work at the Castle Canteen will battle food waste and bring different people from the local community together for a free meal. You’ll help with every aspect of serving up a delicious meal to the guests.

What you can expect to be doing:

• Helping to devise the session’s menu based on the available products
• Chopping, seasoning and stirring
• Chatting with guests

Your help will make sure people in need have access to a warm meal and foster community bonding.

    This was an excellent volunteering opportunity, well placed in the community.

    This was a great experience – we planned a three-course meal (creativity encouraged!) using the surplus produce that Ben, the organiser, had collected from Borough market earlier in the day – and then the preparation and cooking got underway. Would recommend.
