FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do we need a professional looking camping stove?
No, so long as it works and can be kept clean it will be fine. Do try to make your table inviting to the public though. We have found jars of lentils, beans, and rice can help, and so can adding a fruit bowl.
Do we need to apply for permission from the council?
In the UK you do not need to apply for permission. If you are outside the UK you will need to check with your local council.
What do we do with donations that we collect?
It is entirely up to you, as long as you use it to help the events. If you want to pay back volunteers who bring food you can or save it up to purchase better equipment for your next event. If you wish, however, you can send it to us and we will use it to help new groups set up.
How much food should I bring?
Bring as much as you can, but don't worry if you don't bring much. We only giving people a taster, not a full meal, so a little can go a long way!
How can I organise volunteers?
We will set you up a volunteers group that you can add people into and as the event grows people will add themselves to. This is a great way to organise volunteers for the event.
