Community Sharing Feast
May 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
EVENT CANCELLED Quercus Beechworth believes sharing a meal helps bring people in our community together. Meals are prepared and served in the spirit of co-operation by community volunteers with people coming together to share a meal and engage in conversation. The Community Sharing Feast is a way for residents, both young and old or new to the area to meet up with people they know or make new friends. Take the night off from cooking to enjoy a free and nutritious meal open to all the community. We use produce from the community food garden and donated food from the Albury/Wodonga Regional FoodShare for the feast. Community Sharing Feast is an alcohol free event. Bookings are essential so make sure you book early to avoid missing out. Dates are available on our Online Calendar, at the Quercus Community Bookshop. Bookings are essential by calling us on 03 5728 2386 or clicking here for bookings
