Summer begins! Socials, Head Cheffing and our brush with fame!

Hello FoodCyclers!

It seems like summer is finally here and what better way to kick it off than with a FoodCycle Social!

We are having a meeting for potential Head Chefs (more details on this in a minute…) at 7pm on Thursday 25th of April and then are following it up with our now monthly Social at 8pm! Come meet us at the St James Wine Vaults (we’ll be upstairs) from 7pm onwards for the pub quiz (which starts at 9pm so try and get there before 8.30pm so we can enter teams! Entry is £1 per person – no general knowledge required!).

Calling all potential Head Chefs!

We at Bath FoodCycle are committed to the training and development of our volunteers and one of the ways to grow and progress within our team is to express an interest in Head Chef training.

Our Head Chefs work alongside out Session Leader to help plan, organise and deliver a three course meal for our service users. You will learn how to plan a menu, how to manage a team of volunteers and how to manage the team’s time to ensure the food is ready on time. You may already have some or all of these skills or may be completely new to this type of role and we will provide all the support and training you need to surprise yourself! You will be paired with a mentor who will guide you through your training and through regular catch ups we will ensure that any additional training needs are recognised. Whether you want to build your leadership skills and boost your CV or just help deliver an essential service to people who really benefit from it; we want to hear from you!

We are asking those who are interested to either email us at bathfoodcycle@gmail.com or to come along to the pre-social meeting at 7pm at the St James Wine Vaults on Thursday the 25th of April.

Bath FoodCycle on the news!

I want to say a big thank you and well done to everyone who was involved with our latest brush with fame! We were featured on ITV regional news! See the video on the link here:

A huge well done goes to our PR Hub Leader, Lucy, for setting it all up and also to all of our brave stars who featured in the video. This kind of publicity is incredible for a small hub such as Bath FoodCycle so please watch, share and spread the word!

The next few session’s rotas are up on the website so put your name down and I hope to see you at a cook soon! Coming in the next newsletter… details of our new Community Participation training program – watch this space!

Hoping you are all having a lovely weekend,

Alice & the Bath FoodCycle Team!
