FIG Local has an exciting opportunity to offer….

To launch the new Notts Nosh Food brand FIG Local will be holding 4 ‘Notts Nosh Festive Feast Events’ in December in our 4 target areas; Bulwell, Aspley, Killisick and Netherfield.

Notts Nosh was created to showcase all of the wonderful food that is being produced within Nottinghamshire, to tap into local pride and to encourage people to buy local food. In doing this we will be addressing the issues that families face in these tough economic times.

The cost of feeding our families is ever rising and this is due to many factors.  One of these factors is the cost of transport and oil from importing foods which raise our food prices. Not only does the current food system take its toll on the environment it also means that lower income households are beginning to struggle with affording food.

The Notts Nosh Festive Feast Events will be held at community centers in our target areas and will offer a free meal made from local, seasonal donated vegetables. The event will also be an opportunity to hand out community food maps of the area which will showcase free, affordable and community based food and encouraging people to access and use these.

We will also have stalls selling fresh local vegetables, jams, chutneys, honey, cakes etc as well as a raffle for food hampers.

Any money raised will be donated to a local food bank or charity serving food.

The opportunity

Is for an individual/group/community cafe to co-ordinate the one pot meal aspect of the events including

  • Sourcing the recipe (to be kept simple examples would be; a veg risotto, veg stew or soup)
  • Co-ordination of a team of volunteers to prep, cook and serve the one pot meal

This opportunity is voluntary however the event will be highly publicized in the media including radio, newspapers and possibly TV and could be a great promotional opportunity for the persons/business/group involved.

We are hoping to roll out a weekly community café in these areas depending on the success of the Festive Events and this could lead to potential employment for the persons involved.
