Sow, grow and cook

Food for Life Get Togethers are all about bringing people together using the power of good food.

This year, World Food Day is calling for action to make healthy and sustainable diets affordable and accessible to everyone. It's is an ideal opportunity to get together and enjoy some good, nutritious food. 

There’s no strict recipe to what a World Food Day Get Together can be. It could be anything from ‘bring a dish’ where people bring a plate of food from around the world, to a curry cook off! 

Why not try something new for World Food Day? Sign up now and get your social bubble or neigbours involved. Use our carrot and spinach recipes for cooking inspiration, and sign up to our Cookalong with community cook Negat Hussain.  

How to get started:

  1. Sign up today and get a free pack of spinach or carrot seeds in the post! Plant them now, grow over summer and use your produce on World Food Day.
  2. Read our top tips for getting started. It's easier than you think!
  3. Send out invites to your community and wait for the RSVPs to roll in. Let's put an end to lonely mealtimes.

All Food for Life Get Togethers should be held in line with the latest government guidelines for your area to minimise the risk of Covid-19, including physical distancing. 

We want to hear from you! Be part of something bigger and share your snaps with us using #FFLGetTogethers, #WorldFoodDay, @SAFoodforLife.
