Cook an extra plate for a neighbour
Back in 2011 FutureGov created a community project -- specially designed to connect people who like to cook with their older neighbours who aren’t always able to cook for themselves. It's called The Casserole Club.
Volunteers share extra portions of home-cooked food with people in their area who aren’t always able to cook for themselves. They share once a week, once a month, or whenever works best for them. Cooking meals at home is something volunteers are already doing and so it easy to provide an extra plate and take it round.
It is a way to build community and encourages new friendships.
As Christians in the local community, we have a choice - we can use the services of The Casserole Club to meet new contacts or maybe we already know of people locally that would appreciate a cooked meal sometimes and maybe some company.
Participants would need to learn something about food safety and also comply with your church's safeguarding policy.
Why not suggest this to the church?
