Square Chapel receives National Lottery funding for Stories Are Edible 2019 community project.

More than 2,250 community-led projects in England celebrate almost £65 million National Lottery funding win. 

We are happy to confirm that we have received £9,705 National Lottery funding for our Stories are Edible 2019 project!

Preparing food, and the ritual of coming together to eat, sits at the heart of almost every community, family and cultural tradition across the globe – it is where identities are created, experienced and shared, and where stories are passed from one person to another.

Stories Are Edible is a community project bringing a range of people together to make food, listen to stories, take photographs and share these in a unique recipe book. Oral Historian Irna Qureshi and Photographer Lizzie Coombes are currently working with our Outreach team to collate stories, the finished recipe book will be available later this year.

For more information about this project, contact Maria Spadafora (Education and Engagement Coordinator) on 01422 353 073
