Lincoln Pantry Community Lunches
Culture is a Verb

Community Lunches are part of Inaugural Artist Kathrin Böhm's Culture is a Verb common for Mansions of the Future. Each monthly lunch has a different theme and uses food— its production, consumption and policies – as the perfect common denominator to connect everyone around the table.

The monthly lunches are an opportunity to meet others who are involved with growing and food production, share a nice lunch together and have an informal conversation about how we can grow, organise and enjoy food together.

Each lunch will be prepared with locally sourced food.

For the first communal lunch at Mansions of the Future on Thursday 28 June from 12-2pm we are inviting Lincoln residents who are actively involved in growing and thinking food on a number of levels, from running community allotments, to therapeutic growing, no-food-waste initiatives and rethinking food systems.

Nigel Curry will lead the lunch by presenting A food strategy for the City of Lincoln. Nigel Curry is a member of the Health Advancement Research Team (HART) and Visiting Professor in the Lincoln International Business School.

For the second community lunch Mint Lane Cafe will lead an open discussion around social eating and how to create healthy and affordable meals, while demonstrating how to make one simple dish.

Mint Lane Cafe is a social eating space providing a warm welcome to the well-being centre of Lincoln. It uses retail surplus food to create healthy and affordable meals alongside purposeful and creative activities. They work to reduce food waste and take action on food poverty by providing wholesome meals for people who cannot afford to eat well. There are many volunteering opportunities at the cafe. You can get involved to make a difference through various roles with provided training.
