A new Lunch Club has started at The Frithwood Youth Centre each Tuesday from 12 noon. A freshly cooked 3 course lunch costs £5 and people of all ages are welcome to come. Food includes a choice of starters, mains and dessert, last week there was a choice of homemade tomato soup or asparagus or corn on the cob, followed by a chilli jacket potato with salad or spaghetti bolognese, with a dessert of either apple crumble or plum sponge with custard and topped of with either tea or coffee.
The Lunch Club is run by the award winning Severn View Food Project CIC, provides employment and training for those with learning disabilities and wherever possible uses surplus food from Waitrose. Surplus food,is food which cannot be sold because perhaps the packaging is damaged, there is too much of it, or it has passed its best before date and would otherwise have been thrown away. The Project featured on BBC1s , The Big Food Rescue last year.
Anyone interested in attending should call Debbie Young on 01453 887565.
