A little introduction.
Street Feast is Ireland’s annual day of street parties & community lunches. We invite you to host a party with your neighbours on Sunday 5th May 2019.
Register your feast on this website and we’ll send you out your free party pack to help you get started. This is the 10th year of Street Feast (last year over 130,000 people took part in over 1,280 Street Feasts).
Street Feast is supported by the Department of Community and Rural Development and the Local Authorities.
A little bit about who’s behind Street Feast
We started out as a team of volunteers, passionate about community. What better way to bring community together than through food? We teamed up to see the simple idea of Street Feast reach its full potential. Since then, we’ve learnt lots from experience. We now have a team of coordinators, advisors and volunteers who make Street Feast ‘happen’.
We first started in 2010 – the idea was conceived over many conversations as we tried to figure out a way to reduce isolation, our environmental impact, and boost community resilience. The team were Andy Thompson, Jerrieann Sullivan, Joanne Doherty, Zand Craig & Sam Bishop. Over the years the team has changed as people have had family & work commitments. In 2014 we had a brilliant new Street Feast team: Sam, Peter, Ciana & Jillian made Street Feast happen for a 5th consecutive year. In 2015 we teamed up with ChangeX to increase impact yet again. In 2016 we held the Centenary Street Feast and President Michael D Higgins became the patron of Street Feast. In 2017 and 2018 we continued to grow the campaign.
We’re based in a small studio called Monstertruck on Francis Street, Dublin 8.
If you’d like to get involved in making Street Feast happen, whether it be as a volunteer, intern or collaboration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always open to fresh ideas and new energy.
Design & Website
We’ve been very lucky to have collaborated with great people to create a colourful, bright and fun brand & website. This was all down to the great work by the very wonderful Atto Partners, back when Street Feast started in 2010. They were just brilliant. You should definitely say hello to them. Since then we’ve worked with the lovely Marta Sikora, Matthew Byrne, Francisco Javier Rodas and now John Lambert who’ve all worked on maintaining the site. We work closely with ChangeX who now manage the registrations and are an inspiring and rapidly growing platform of social solutions.
