Reading Town Meal 28th September 2019

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.

Reading Town Meal is a community-run event which could not happen without the wonderful support of our volunteers, chefs, growers, sponsors, entertainers, stallholders and organisers.
