Food poverty and a FREE banquet

NECN Contributor1 24th September 2015 Local News Comments Off on Food poverty and a FREE banquet

The Centipede Project is celebrating local produce whilst creatively highlighting food poverty on Monday 12th October.

An art installation incorporated into a Harvest Banquet will focus on facts about food poverty at the same time as celebrating traditions of grace and sharing of food from around the world.


With contributions from local growing groups and cooks, local residents of both Muirhouse and West Pilton will share a three-course meal free of charge at lunchtime on 12th October in the Old Kirk and Muirhouse Church.

Thanks to support from local organisations, a very special treat will be on offer for dessert!

Children from the area can also enjoy a free ‘Porridge & Play’ session, run by theatre company Licketyspit in the morning which will take place on the new play space created by Centipede Project in May 2015.

This will be followed by art workshops and apple pressing throughout the day.
