  Frugal Harvest Brunch  

10:30am - 12:30pm, SAT, 30 SEP

to celebrate Harvest Festival
 

We will be serving a brunch with no meat, but you will not go hungry!

However, all across this country there are families who struggle to put food on the table; childtren are going to school hungry and parents are skipping meals so that their kids can eat an evening meal. We want to help make sure that no one has to go hungry this harvest time.

Your frugal harvest brunch,consisting of:

  • a fruit compote or porridge

  • a hot cooked meal of hash brown, baked beans, mushrooms, toast and an egg

  • orange juice, tea or coffee

will cost you just £5.

Here is how YOU will help

  • Just £3 can provide lunch for a child during the school holidays as free school meals disappear.

  • £9 will pay for an emergency food parcel for a family for one day.

  • Each £25 raised can provide a slow cooker so that families can make simple and nutritious meals with the food they receive from food banks.

Together we can make a huge difference to the lives of families across the countries who are struggling to feed themselves. 

Having paid for your brunch, we are asking if you can afford to add a little extra to help someone a lot less fortunate than us. The money donated will be sent to the Church Urban Fund to help support people in this country who are in food poverty. Every little helps.

Together we CAN make a difference!
