A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday. Dinner is served from 7pm, until it is all gone, for a suggested donation of £3.50 – no one goes hungry!

People’s Kitchen often compliments fundraising events at the Sumac Centre, with extra funds raised to benefit the benefit. If you would like to hold a fundraising event, including a People’s Kitchen meal, please email us!

basket-of-vegetablesPeople’s Kitchen relies wholly on volunteers. From chopping veg through to heading up the menu, there are hands-on opportunities at every level for anyone wishing to find out more about vegan cookery. ‘Chefs’, cookery assistants, serfs and washers-up welcome – guidance given!

Please get involved and email sumaccafe[at]gmail[dot]com if you’d like to volunteer.

If you want to organise a benefit evening meal for your campaign, please get in touch as well. Below is a listing of upcoming events – if your preferred date doesn’t have a name next to it it’s probably free, but e-mail sumaccafe[at]gmail[dot]com to make sure and to book your place.

Note: temporary email address for coordinator : fi44corbett@hotmail.co.uk

You can also follow Peoples Kitchen news via Sumac Centre on Facebook (or the SumacCafe FB page).
