Never Miss A Wednesday

Wed 29 Dec
Report written by Anwen Greenaway

It might be that disorientating time between Christmas and New Year when time loses all meaning and you aren't quite sure what day of the week it is, but 6 GoodGymers set their alarms for 4:30pm Wednesday to meet our commitments with the food bank.

We finished packing the day's food parcels ready for delivery, sorted the fruit and veg to weed out all the mouldy items, emptied out of date food from the fridges, restocked the shelves, and helped load up cars for the various delivery routes.

It was a calm shift with an early finish; a post-Christmas miracle!

There won’t be task for the larger group this Wednesday, but we’ll maintain our commitment to the food bank. Afterall, people don’t stop needing food between Christmas and New Year!

We will be based inside Richard Benson Hall preparing food parcels in the food bank and helping the delivery drivers load them into their cars. We will do some restocking of the shelves too if there's time.

Please wear a mask. Anwen will be at the hall from about 4pm, so feel free to turn up any time between 4pm and 4:30pm.

Meat-Free Monday!

Mon 20 Dec
Report written by Anwen Greenaway

Our Advent Calendar suggestion yesterday was to try Meat-Free Monday.

Lots of top tips and favourite recipes were exchanged:

  • Ben: Get a regular veg box from local farms (Cultivate) or waste food (OddBox) and make a stir fry or a curry. Also, pumpkins grown in the allotment are good for currys, cheesecake and hummus.
  • Hattie: Halloumi fajitas- chop veg (peppers onions mushrooms etc) and slice halloumi into strips, coat all lightly in oil and fajita spices, roast in oven for 20-25 mins.
  • Jo: Easy Lentil Dhal.
  • Bethan: Burrito Bowls, and a delicious pasta dish: roast a punnet of cherry toms with oil, balsamic salt and pepper and herbs for 45 mins. Plonk onto the top of your chosen pasta, add cheese, consume.
  • Milly: Vegan Tacos and mushroom wellington - perfect for a veggie Christmas!
