Last Saturday a fantastic group of GoodGym and other volunteers helped out GCDA at the Woolwich Winter Warmer. The idea behind the event is to use surplus food (food that was over-produced and would've otherwise been thrown out ) to serve-up delicious meals for the local community.

The Christmas soundtrack playing throughout got us all in the right mood and we sliced and grated vegetables, served up a variety of salads, a curry and pasta. We didn't leave until it was dark and the tent was taken down again (and we still got to enjoy a bit of the spectacle, see photos!). Many thanks to everyone who came!
