The NeighbourFood Podcast
A chat with Sam Bishop, founder of Street Feast, a lovely lunch with your neighbours
We are chatting to community hero Sam Bishop this week. As well as many other strings to his bow, Sam is the founder of Street Feast; Ireland’s national day of community lunches which this year takes place on June 26, 2022. This is all about building community and tackling isolation, getting together with your neighbours to share food and enjoy conversation and camaraderie.
We chat to Sam about the origins of Street Feast, all our experiences hosting events, how to go about hosting your own community Street Feast, the importance of community and we learn about the other things Sam is involved in such as the NeighbourHood Network, aswell as who is inspiring him at the moment.
Head along to StreetFeast.ie to find out more. And for a Street Feast to happen, it doesn’t matter if you live in an apartment or house, all you need is a space to bring people together. There have been feasts organised in front gardens, on streets and greens, in car parks, laneways, local parks and community centres and can’t wait to see what you come up with!
