Street Feast is a day of local lunches across Ireland on 12th June, hosted by you and your neighbours. They can be anywhere really — out on the street, in a local park or in your front garden.
There are lots of good reasons to have a Street Feast, but it's really just a great excuse to eat great food, celebrate your local community and meet new people who live near you.
You can run one of these, or just make up your own. A car park party or a field party could be even better.
There are actually 243 good reasons to run your own Street Feast, but we know you don't have that kind of time, so here's 6 of the best...
To celebrate our streets, cul-de-sacs, neighbourhoods & local communities.
To support and shine a light on the communities, networks and organisations that are holding everything together.
To have fun. To laugh. To stop for a moment. To open up and give-up our shyness for a day. It’s so much better with others…
To encourage more life on the streets, feel safer and reduce loneliness and isolation.
To share great local food, home-grown produce, cracking stories, bad jokes, practical skills, useful tools, different customs, common ground…
To show what can be achieved when a small group of neighbours come together and try something special
