the spirit of giving

A community spirited event in Wellington brought food lovers together for a great cause, reports Julie Treanor.

The act of sharing food is so often an act of love, appreciation and friendship. This was the
essence of The Giving Table event which was held in Wellington in early November. It was a community dinner for WWGSD (also known as Women Who Get Shit Done), hosted by Food Gatherings to bring this community of thinkers, creaters, doers and leaders to meet, eat and be inspired.

Hosted at Biz Dojo, the co-working community base, and in the spirit of sharing personal gifts and talents, the event was BYO and self-catered by an enthusiastic group of home cooks. With the generous support of local businesses, The Giving Table raised $1,000 for Wellington food heroes Kaibosh, who distribute surplus food from businesses to people who might otherwise go without.

Future Giving Table events are planned for 2017, for more information visit www.foodgatherings.com
