Tenterden Community Hub - Community Lunch
Friday 12th January 2018 , 12.30pm

St Mildred's Hall, Church Road, Tenterden
This community lunch is a joint initiative with FareShare to provide a regular lunch for families and individuals in Tenterden who may wish to discuss their specific needs - be they financial, social or otherwise. For the first of these community lunches we are inviting community leaders to the event to hear about the initiative and hopefully raise awareness of both charities. The food will be provided by "FareShare", which collects surplus (but within-date) foods from local supermarkets and distributes that food to other charities, such as TCH, for the benefit of their communities. Refreshments will also be available. If you would like to attend this lunch please contact tenterdencommunityhub@gmail.com
