Stories and Supper: A Refugee Stories Supper Club

This Spring, The Hornbeam will partner with the new Stories and Supper project.  We’ll be creating  opportunities for forced migrants and others to create food together and tell the stories that need telling.

Are you connected with a refugee, regardless of status, who would relish an opportunity to cater for a large group and build networks and skills?  Do you or anyone you know have an interest in supporting people to make networks and build skills here in your community?  Are you passionate about changing the story around migration?  Please get in touch and let us know if you can be part of the following…

What we need:

  • Refugee Volunteers (any status) at least 6 places available, flyer HERE (and at the end of this page)
  • ‘Buddy’ support volunteers at least 6 places available
  • Key skills volunteers – to lead sessions of one or two hours on storytelling, planning a menu, customer service etc as part of a series of skills-building sessions.
  • Chefs with capacity to nurture others’ skills and abilities

To be part of it:  email to talk about what’s involved.  supperandstories@gmail.com

Monday 30th January:  Introductory evening for all ‘buddy’ and session volunteers. 7,30pm with food.

Induction and meetup for all volunteers:  come to Peoples Kitchen on 6th February – come from 12.30 to register, 1pm is a free lunch.

Monday evenings for 6 weeks from 6th February:  sessions to prepare for dinner including Food Safety, Group Catering, Storytelling and Perfomance, Using your Experience.

All vounteers are welcome to get to know the Hornbeam and the Hornbeam kitchen in any of our opportunities, check volunteering and events for other up to date information.

Let us know you’re interested on the Facebook event wall for the introductory evening – and please share with as many people as you can.  Thanks!
