CommUNITY meet and eat

At City College Peterborough, we host a monthly social dining experience at our campus and across the wider Peterborough community. We truly believe that the simple act of sharing a meal and eating together is a great way to make new friends and build on our already vibrant society.

We offer a cheap 3 course meal (£2.50) to help bring people together from across Peterborough, including the socially isolated. Our motto is ‘If you can’t pay – you don’t have to’. The benefit of the CommUNITY Meet & Eat is that it supports Peterborough and its-wide-ranging and diverse city communities in reducing social isolation, increasing wellbeing, whilst supporting integration and cohesion. 

To date we have served over 1,000 meals across Peterborough’s Communities and helping to reduce food poverty.

Top 3 learnings:

1 Start off small - our project has steadily expanded to new locations since being implemented.

2 Set realistic targets - remember it takes time and dedication for a project to become successful.

3 Pick the right advertising channels for your event - getting this right is essential to the success of your event.
