Freebridge puts food at the heart of the community


Freebridge Community Housing are delighted to introduce their new Community Caterer, Sarah Cummins.

Working as part of Freebridge’s Placeshaping Team, Sarah will be out and about across West Norfolk supporting community initiatives that promote social inclusion, inspire healthy eating and reduce isolation.

She is a one-stop shop for supporting anyone wanting to set up new groups and events such as lunch clubs, kids food groups, healthy eating workshops or community coffee mornings.

Sarah can support charities and community groups with logistics, suppliers, recipes, regulations and even hands-on catering support.

Sarah said: “I’m really looking forward to getting out and about across West Norfolk and working with people in the community. Food is such a great way to get people talking – whether it’s catching up with old friends or making new ones.”

Healthy eating workshops for families, youth groups and community organisations are available. Maybe you’re a cub or brownie group looking for a creative weekly meeting, perhaps a youth club wanting to teach some life skills, or maybe a charity working with disadvantaged families wanting to host workshops focussed on family food on a budget. Whatever your requirements are Sarah is here to help.

Freebridge’s Director of Housing Sophie Bates said: “We’ve been working really hard over the past few months to make sure that everything Sarah does brings people together, but in in a safe and engaging way. In recent months many people across West Norfolk have struggled with feelings of isolation and we hope that Sarah’s new role will help some of those affected.”

Alongside this food-based community support, the Community Caterer also provides buffet and event catering at competitive prices. So if you have a meeting, office get together or away day planned that you need food for get in touch.

Strict food hygiene regulations are in place and items will be adapted to meet Covid-19 safety restrictions.

If you’re a community group, charity or business that needs Sarah’s help, or want to find out more about what she can offer then get in touch on communitycaterer@freebridge.org.uk or 07464 498632 / 01553 666677 or at www.freebridge.org.uk/community-caterer.html
