1 Potato, 2 Potato, 3 Potato, 4. 5 Potato, 6 Potato, 7 Potato... please no more!!!

Luton Report written by Gill (She/her)

4 of our regular FoodCycle Goodgymers put their well honed veg peeling skills to the test this afternoon as we had been asked to prepare the vegetables for the St George's Day charity meal for pensioners tomorrow. We started peeling and chopping the ingredients for the vegetable soup, and before long there were enough carrots, swede and leaks prepared for two huge vats. Vera, who had requested our help was really pleased with the speed with which we worked so next put us to the task of peeling enough potatoes for 70 - 80 people to have 4 roasties each. Just when we thought we'd done enough she announced she also needed enough potatoes to make enough mash for the same number of people. We had finished one sack of potatoes, but as if by magic, Vera produced another sack, and we carried on peeling. We soon lost count of how many we had done.

Then it was onto peeling even more carrots and cutting them into coins to accompany the main course. Vera had allowed three hours for us to complete the mammoth amount of prep but she hadn't factored in just how efficient a GoodGym team can be and we were finished in record time, including enough time for Gill to wash up, Ruth to sweep the floor, and Myra to liquidise the soup.

Thanks Team, Vera was really appreciative of our help and we are all invited to go back to the Community Centre tomorrow if we would like to have dinner with the folk. And I promise you won't have to peel another spud!

Running and Rolling

Luton Report written by David Mansfield

Five Fit Goodgymers took on the uphill run from the town centre to Stopsley on a mission to complete a second round of painting at the Green House community hub.

The old Sunday school building has been converted into a community cafe to sit alongside the community garden and be a meeting point for the community.

We painted the new toilets white and primed the fresh plaster in the main space ready to take a nice coat of white next time.

The evening was finished off with a nice downhill run back into town.

Aloo, is it me you're looking for

Luton Report written by Martin R

Another great session tonight at the Shri Guru Ravidass Sangat Gudwara, supporting the temple with their near neighbours project and welcoming members of the Roma trust and friends of the temple. Tonight we made Aloo Paratha. We were all keen to get stuck in and learn the new skill, making and cookingbthese delicious, stuffed flatbreads 🫓. We welcomed Sheetal to the temple this evening this was her 3rd GG task and i'm sure she enjoyed being with the team. It was also great to see Kamal after a short break from tasks recently hope he can make it along again soon. After sampling our tasty treats, Gill and I had to head off tho join this weeks group run, but the rest of the team stayed and helped with the clean down and tidy up. Great effort guys and girls.
