What is Reading Town Meal?

Reading Town Meal is a truly community-powered event. First held in 2011, so far there have been six 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.

The date is fixed and planning is on track so now we need your help to make it all happen! We are looking for keen growers to Pledge your Veg and help us assemble all the ingredients for the meal, as well as lots of you to sign up to be Town Meal Makers and help out with the event planning and on the day itself.
