Food-based activities for groups

The sharing of a meal or food moment can be a ​lovely, informal way of breaking down social barriers. 

Activities involving food are great for building community - regardless of group size.

Food Fun was developed as a resource to support Group Co-ordinators in their immensely important, community-building work. It contains lots of interactive and innovative ideas 
​based on food as a theme.

What makes Food Fun so great?
