We’re on our way to Reading Town Meal 2016!

Thanks to everyone who has given so generously to make a meal for Reading, there’s now well over £1,000 in the pot and we are hoping to bubble up to half way to target very soon.

All this fantastic support means we can hire Forbury Gardens on 1st October, pay for the sound system and toilets, and get the plates and cutlery for 1,000 tasty home-grown meals.  Now we need a really big push to get that marquee and kit it out as the Reading Town Meal kitchen for 2016.

Can you help? Please share this page on email and social media! There are only two weeks left, and if each of us persuaded just 2 more people to chip in we will smash the target and make a community-powered Reading Town Meal happen.

There are now even more ‘meal maker’ rewards for Reading Town Meal supporters: click the blue Pledge button to see the full tasty selection.  And we've added more ways to give on the page: credit cards, debit cards and paypal.

We’d love to hear from you if you have ideas, feedback or any questions. Email us at or use ‘Message Project’ on this page. THANK YOU!
