The Freedom FEASTival is back for 2018 and we need your help to ensure that we sow, grow and cook a FEAST to remember.
The Freedom FEASTival, first launched in 2017, built on the work of TimeBank Hull and East Riding who devised Hull Harvest FEASTival and asked gardeners and growers in Hull and East Riding to share gluts of produce in order to create a feast free to all. Encouraging strangers to come together to meet, talk, eat and remind one other that connectivity is as vital as the food we eat.
However, working in partnership with Mutual Aid, Hull Harvest Feastival and Artlink alongside multiple community groups across the city, the Freedom FEASTival and has emerged as an enduring long-lasting programme rooted in a broader discussion around food equity, empowerment and community cohesion.
With a large serving of theatrics to go alongside this spectacular homegrown feast which will see over 1500 people participate, the Freedom FEASTival 2018, which will take place on the 2nd September is set to be a feast to remember.
Throughout the summer a series of Freedom FEASTival events will be held at sites across the city to grow, harvest, cook and prepare recipes for the big event. What’s more, the project will continue to inform and drive a citywide Sustainable Food City initiative which will lead to long-term change.
