Street party food

Food brings people together. It is worth making a real effort to have gorgeous food that means something to a wide range of residents and is memorable.
So here are some ideas:

  • Bringing food to share means that each house can make a contribution.
  • Seasonal British / locally grown food could be a nice theme.
  • Plot to Plate - do any residents have some lovely things grown in the gardens or allotments?
  • A cake/baking competition, or celebratory cake for a birthday or something?
  • Have a seasonal fruit/harvest strawberry/apple/plum/ theme.
  • Local / independent beer from pub or ordered.
  • Make food prizes for a raffle or other competitions.
  • An art competition on a food theme, using paper plates, cups and table cloths.
