URBAN FEAST – a fabulous event!

Thank you South Kilburn for such a wonderful event last Friday 29 January !

Nearly 300 people attended over the whole event!

We ate over 5 kilo of popcorn!

Served 120 dinners!

Gave away countless leaflets,  flyers and information about food and health.  Gave away lots of food samples and seeds and gathered lots of information about what people want from Granville Community Kitchen.

Thank you to everyone who helped, had a stall and attended for making the day so amazing!
