Volunteer some time to cook a communal lunch using the seasonal produce we've grown. Whether you are a seasoned cook or are new to cooking, there's a place for you! You'll be guided by a chef if you want to be, prepare something of your own choosing, or support the other volunteers with cooking. The cooking sessions are on Wednesdays at 10am in the container.
Eat with us
After we've made lunch, we share it, so come for lunch, meet people and enjoy freshly prepared local food. Chat to people you don't know - chat to people you do know! Learn about how the food was produced, where it was grown, what varieties we are using. Make a donation to the co-op if you can, help put serve or clean up if you can't.
If you are from the Tang Hall area, become a member of the Tang Hall Food Coop. You can volunteer with us to grow food or to help run the shop, and shape what we are doing and how we are doing it - it is a cooperative after all! We can share ideas, learn from each other, and help the food cooperative to grow. We will meet at least twice a week and work together at the allotment or in the shipping container shop. Don't worry if you've never done anything like this before, all you need to be is interested and willing to help - everyone can offer something worthwhile to the cooperative.
We will be having regular lunches with food we've grown on the allotment and bits and pieces from the shop. We want people to know about all the interesting ways you can cook seasonal and local vegetables and we have chefs who will help you do this. Even if you don't want to cook, you can still come along, enjoy a meal, meet other local people and find out more about what we're doing. Sharing a meal is one of the best ways to find some common ground - people from all walks of life come to the community centre, and everyone's got a story to tell.
Once our shop launches, we will aim to have a good stock of wholefoods so you can buy all of your food locally, ethically and sustainably. The prices will be good, as we will be buying in bulk at wholesale prices (from ethical suppliers), and passing those savings on to you, by selling at the same wholesale prices but in small quantities. Tang Hall residents can apply for a membership card with additional benefits. All the produce will be carefully sourced, and we won't be using plastic packaging. We will also have recipe cards to help you make the most of the seasonal vegetables.
