Kids open up about why they love Street Feast

Every year, people who take part in Street Feast contact us to share their stories on how Street Feast has helped them to be-friend their neighbours, kickstart new community initiatives in their area, or simply increase the smiles on the street. Whether it’s about strengthening the community or sharing a piece of cake, we truly appreciate when people tell us what Street Feast means to them.

So, our hearts melted when we received these letters from some kids aged 8-12 from Drogheda.

Street Feast is a day of local lunches across Ireland on 11th 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.
