Foodcycle Merton – What Have We Been Up To?

Food Cycle

Hello Merton FoodCyclers! Find out what the Merton hub have been up to!

Merton Foodcycle Volunteering

What a cook!

On Wednesday 21st September, FoodCycle Merton held its first cook, and it was a great success!

We collected surplus from Sainsburys in Colliers Wood as a special one-off donation, and we were also donated dryastore ingredients by United Living, which we made good use of when we got to work in the kitchen at the New Horizons Centre.

So what did we make?

Our lovely team of volunteers cooked a delicious menu of:
• Root Vegetable soup
• Cheesy vegetable crumble with rainbow slaw
• Fruit salad

Our guests loved the meal and we had some special visitors including local councillor Joan Henry.

Despite a few challenges, the team worked brilliantly together and thought on their feet. We even managed to get the meal ready ahead of schedule and were able to supply some surplus for the bingo night in the centre later that day.

Let’s do it again!

Big thanks go to the team at New Horizons who got stuck in and helped us get the meal cooked and to Sainsburys Colliers Wood and United Living for helping with the surplus.

We will be holding another Wednesday lunchtime event at the Merton hub soon and will let you all know about this as soon as the details are finalised. If you would like to get involved, please email us.

Keep your eyes open for more news from us!
