Reading Town Meal 29th September 2018

The event is held in Forbury Gardens from 12noon until 4pm. Lunch is served until the food runs out!

The biggest "picnic in the park" that Reading has ever seen will return to Forbury Gardens on Saturday 29th September and you are invited to this fantastic celebration of local sustainable food. It's one of the events that makes Reading a special place. See the video of Reading Town Meal 2017.

What is Reading Town Meal?

Reading Town Meal is a truly community-powered event. First held in 2011, so far there have been five fantastic 'picnics in the park' celebrating the delicious fruit and veg that is grown in Reading. All the food is donated by the wonderful growers and allotment holders around Reading, cooked by Reading College students, and served free in Forbury Gardens. The meal is accompanied by music from local bands, family fun activities, plus the chance to learn more about growing your own food, shop with local producers and find out what local community and sustainability groups are doing in Reading.

Get Involved!

We need your help to make the event a success. See the video made by That's Thames Valley TV about volunteering for the Town Meal.
