Saturday 1st December saw GCDA feed over 600 people with our Surplus Feast at the annualWoolwich Winter Warmer event organised by the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Our regular volunteers cooked up a storm alongside some new faces from Good Gym as well as Masterchef 2017 finalist Steve Kielty.
All the dishes served were made from surplus ingredients which would otherwise have gone to waste. We created a veg-packed Thai green curry, spicy smokey beans and lentils with natural yoghurt, a fresh tomato soup, a veggie stir-fry and a delicious banana smoothie. It just goes to show that you can make absolutely delicious, nutritious meals from relatively little.
We had many happy customers on the day, from families enjoying the fun in General Gordon Square to passers-by and shoppers. Even the local Community Support Officers came over to fill up with a hot meal!
