The free community event on the 2nd June is being hosted by the Alternative Learning Company in partnership with the Llanelli Multicultural Network the team here at Foothold Cymru.
Taking place at the Selwyn Samuel Centre the event will bring together communities from across Llanelli and Carmarthenshire to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, community and food.
There will be opportunities for people to sample food from the communities represented there including Welsh, Polish, Chinese and Ukrainian. They’ll also be kid’s activities, refreshments, free Jubilee celebration cakes and children will receive a free goodie bag.
Paolo Piana from the Llanelli Multicultural Network says: ‘‘We’re lucky to live in a diverse community here in Llanelli and this is a wonderful opportunity to bring all areas of our community together to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, community and food.’’
This event marks the beginning of a yearlong intergenerational cooking project to mark the Queens Platinum Jubilee, which is being run by West Wales youth organisation, The Alternative Learning Company.
Breaking Bread, which is the name of The Alternative Learning Company’s first cooking project to cross generations, will give young people the opportunity to learn about food from the older generations in their community.
Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund’s Platinum Jubilee Fund, the project is bringing together young and older people in Carmarthenshire to cook and enjoy healthy meals on a budget, minimise food waste and share their skills and advice. Learning from other generations about good food is an important part of this project, but it’s also about friendship and community.
The event will take place on Thursday 2nd June from 10am – 2pm, at the Selwyn Samuel Centre, Park Crescent, Llanelli SA15 3AE
