The sun is shining, flowers spilling onto the footpath and the smell of barbeque is wafting along the light Summer breeze. Friends, it’s that time of year again. Get your hats on and the tongs out because Thursday, 11th May, marks ONE MONTH on our calendars till Street Feast 2017.. We couldn’t be more excited!

Street Feast was founded to inspire people to take action in their local communities, to effect positive change and bring people together. We encourage stronger relationships, sharing of culture, sustainable lifestyles and work towards building social resilience.

With alarming statistics about isolation here in Ireland, our aim is to promote social inclusion and strengthen communities. We all know that food brings people together, so why not make a day of it? Share food and conversations with neighbours and come together, because that’s when the real magic happens!

Sam Bishop, Co-Ordinator, believes initiatives like this benefit local communities from the roots up.

“Enough projects like this can catalyse a deeper community involvement, generating businesses, co-operatives and social ventures, in turn generating employment and income. We have seen community gardens, GIY groups and other social initiatives start from Street Feast celebrations. The result is more active communities that are environmentally sustainable and socially cohesive.”

As a patron from last year said, “What better way to bring people together than with food and celebration?”

We sure agree! And what’s more, we will be here to support you every step of the way. So what are you waiting for?! Don’t miss out on one of the best celebrations this Summer!

Street Feast is a day of local lunches across Ireland 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.
