Lunch supported by disability services provider
A lunch, supported by Central Coast Council and a disability services provider, has been provided to 80 Peninsula residents at the Peninsula Community Centre on November 27.
Provider Social Shindigs Services runs activities at the community centre every week for adults living with an intellectual disability.
The lunch consisted of chicken with yoghurt sauce, beetroot feta and pomegranate salad and zucchini slice, followed by pannacota and fresh berries for dessert.
The meal was prepared and served by The Wholesome Collective, and the event included a healthy cooking display, according to Coast Community Connections chief executive Mr Bruce Davis who organised the event.
"The ingredients were all sourced from local producers and farmers from the Central Coast hinterland.
"A local farmer also attended to talk about his farm and share his knowledge and beautiful fresh fruit and vegetables with our community, including the children from our Peninsula occasional childcare service," Mr Davis said.
"The aim of the event was to bring members of the Peninsula community together in an inclusive way to try and address issues of isolation and loneliness," Mr Davis said.
