We are again welcoming room booking requests, for example campaign workshops, band practices, meetings, or other events. Many activities may be held in the garden, but can be inside if appropriate covid precautions are met. See also Sumac Centre news on facebook.
Community Food Hub
Wednesday August 31st @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
In response to the covid-19 crisis we converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from supermarkets crowds or queues.
You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.
Many items come from bulk supplies, weighed to order. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in reusable containers.
We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can defer payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.
Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.
Sumac exists to provides resources and a meeting space for groups and individuals working to promote social justice, environmental awareness, peace, and animal rights.
You can donate here to support us, towards running costs, maintenance, heating bills etc.
