Apple pressing day

Abundance Portsmouth will be holding their first Apple Pressing Day on Sunday 3rd September.  We will be at Eastney & Milton Allotments helping allotment holders crush and press their apples and pears into delicious juice. Surplus fruit will be collected to use at community and school events, as well as getting some of it into the foodbank and community kitchen network.

We could do with some extra volunteers to help on the day with harvesting and helping folks make juice, so please do get in touch if you can spare an hour or so and enjoy some fresh air and community fun.

We'll be at Eastney & Milton Allotments on Sunday 3rd September, next to the shop, setting up at 9am.  It would be great to see you there!

Holiday Fun & Kids Eat Free

to Sep 1

Holiday Fun & Kids Eat Free

While children may be whooping with joy about  the long summer holidays ahead, parents and carers don’t always share their enthusiasm. For many families, providing those extra meals during school holidays can be a real struggle, which is why Food Portsmouth is stepping in again to help.

Following the success of the Holiday Lunches programme last year, kids at Portsmouth City Council’s six adventure playgrounds will be enjoying free lunches of beans on toast, and fresh fruit, on selected days throughout the holidays. The scheme enables those children entitled to free school meals to continue receiving a filling, hot meal during the school holidays, in a fun, social and active environment.

In addition, we are delighted to be working with Northumbria University this year where the holiday food program will be a part of a national, and potentially international, research project into childhood poverty.

The project has been supported by Trussell Trust Food Bank @ King’s Church, Fare Share, FoodCycle, Tesco, Warburtons, PCC Housing department, staff and volunteers at the adventure playgrounds and the Children’s Health Fund.
