A popular community celebration is returning to the city centre this Armistice Day, with a special remembrance theme.Advertisement
Feast for Peace will celebrate 100 years since the end of the First World War with music and dance, and the chance to learn the wisdom of the war kitchen.
As in previous years, volunteer chefs will prepare dishes for the diverse communities of the city using food that would have otherwise gone to waste.
Founder Kay Johnson from community food hub The Larder was inspired to create Feast for Peace after Brexit.
This year’s event had been due to take place in August as part of Summer Saturdays on the Flag Market, but it was postponed due to work and family commitments, and a lack of funding.
At the time Kay said: “Although the event’s success is down to the dedication and hard work of volunteers and the donation of ingredients, there are costs involved that we don’t have a budget for.
“The Larder has also recently undertaken a large scale project which leaves us very little free time to commit to the organisation of Feast for Peace, it’s a very special event and we want to make sure that we do it justice.”
