The agenda for the next meeting can be located in the MEETINGS tab, usual password. This agenda does look long but some of it is quick handover points. Please note the meeting is now at The Fox, Leicester Street. Due to The Fox's popularity we need to move the meeting back by 15 minutes so as not to disrupt the earlier session. We now aim to start by 1.15pm and finish by 2.45pm, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
In order for the Family Food Project to work, we think we're going to need people to lead on the tasks below.
Please could you have a think before the meeting to see whether you, or someone in your church, would be a good fit?
Lead Co-ordinator communicates with all other Leads and the churches re progress, support, timing etc.
Agency co-ordination builds relationships with external agencies and directs and supports communication between them and the teams within Churches Together. POSITION FILLED - THANKS HELEN!
Fund Raising leads on funding applications and other possible avenues of income or financial support. will be needed periodically from now up to the event.
Events Co-ordination communicates with all Churches Together churches to support a summer programme of events, help with generating ideas; a consistent face in the community. This is an ongoing task and will be needed increasingly as the event nears.
Planning and Advertising plans the details of how the system will work e.g. signing up, advertising etc. Most of the work required in this area will be in advance of the event but there will be need to oversee some tasks as the event nears.
Food Donations making contact with agencies through the agency coordinator to ensure supply meets current needs, communication with Churches regarding this supply in terms of recipes; themes etc. This role will be needed throughout the project.
Training Opportunities appropriate Church volunteers required to cook for families and to undertake level 2 hygiene certificates.
We are obviously not looking for professionals to help with these tasks but we do need people with the ability to carry them out and be enthusiastic about getting stuck into feeding our families in Melton .
All Leaders will aim to have volunteers working to support them in their role in addition to having the support of Julie McCarthy, Project Lead.
Volunteers able to support any of the tasks above. If you have a particular skill, whether that’s praying for people or being welcoming to strangers to being good at organising or just good on the phone then we need your skills. Please get in touch with Julie McCarthy on 07779 411730.
Meetings for each team can be held at times and days to suit them as long as progress is maintained in time with the overall project.
All task Leads will need to report to the Steering group with any progress, difficulties or questions to be put to the group at least 3 working days before the meeting in order to be added to the agenda for discussion.
following our last meeting I have updated the project proposal to reflect the changes we made. This can be found in the MEETINGS tab (usual password). Please review this and feedback at our next meeting.
