Due to the continued success of The Crumbs Project outreach program, the charity is launching a number of regular Community Lunches at new venues across Bournemouth.
The Bournemouth based charity which provides vulnerable people the opportunity to train for independence and employment has been overwhelmed by the response to its community lunch program. Crumbs’ mixed ability team have been delivering lunches at Winton Methodist Church and at its own training facility in Hibberd Court on a monthly bases, which are both well attended by local residents. Due to the support from the local community the charity will be launching a series of new regular community lunch dates at venues across Bournemouth.
Crumbs’ Community Lunch program aims to bring a variety of people within the community together. Diners can enjoy a friendly, welcoming atmosphere as well as a two course freshly prepared hot lunch, served by Crumbs’ Trainees. The team prepare a varied menu of traditional favorites from scratch, using seasonal produce. The lunches also provide Crumbs’ Trainees valuable customer service experience, as well as the opportunity to showcase their catering skills.
“We have been overwhelmed by the support from local residents to our community lunches, their regular attendance means we are able to bring additional lunch dates to the Holy Epiphany and St Marks Church in Bournemouth, as well as the All Saints Church in Southbourne.” comments Food Service Manager, Erika Sloper. “The lunches are very welcoming and provide a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, which is perfect for our diners and trainees who may lack in confidence but are able to gain real life catering work experience.”
