Carly our Veg Advocate (VA) from Mid & East Antrim Council has completed her first successful VA event. She was one of the successful grant applicants from the Peas Please Veg Advocate Activities 2022 Small Grants Awards.
Carly organised a very successful food demonstration event at the Kilcreggan Base in Carrickfergus, on the 31st May 2022. The base is a facility designed to enhance community-based day services for adults with learning disabilities and a great place to host this event.
The demonstration was led by a professional local chef Arlene, who once worked with Jamie Oliver. Who made a delicious stew, using only locally sourced, fresh and seasonal vegetables. Most of the quality vegetables were sourced from the local market traders and others had been donated from local organic allotments.
