Green Bay Community House received funding towards upgrades to their kitchen facilities. Installation of a new handbasin is a first step towards providing a local registered kitchen which can be hired for food preparation at an affordable rate by community groups as well as community events such as the Green Bay Bazaar, Wellness & Healing Fair, and Green Bay Street Food.
Once the kitchen is up to standard, Green Bay Community House aims to provide the community with access to good food and sharing knowledge through activities in the kitchen. This could include activities such as a soup kitchen in winter or a community picnic in summer, and offering basic cooking, baking and food preparation classes. It will also provide small food businesses with an opportunity to establish a link to the community by utilising the kitchen facilities.
The overall goal is to offer more social food events and activities at the Green Bay Community House to bring people together.
