Saturday 22nd November 2014
A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday. Dinner is served from 7pm, until it is all gone, for a suggested donation of £3.50. See Menu examples.|

FundraisingPeople's Kitchen often compliments fundraising events at the Sumac Centre, with extra funds raised to benefit the benefit. If you would like to hold a fundraising event, including a People's Kitchen meal, please email sumaccafe[at]gmail.com.
During the summer break a collective of 13 Sumacers took the kitchen to Calais and cooked twice a day for 200 people without papers, as part of Calais Migrant Solidarity. It was totally exhausting and also amazing. It wouldn't have been possible without money raised from People's Kitchen.
Please support the People's Kitchen
People's Kitchen itself needs funds to maintain the kitchen, to support the Sumac mortgage and to maintain a stock of basic ingredients.
