Team Member for Peace ‘n’ Jam

Location: St Luke’s Scottish Episcopal Church, Auchmuty, Glenrothes.

Peace ‘n’ Jam began life serving hot dogs to the local community in Auchmuty, Glenrothes, in July 2021. We became involved in the social isolation issue after COVID 19 and quickly recognised the benefits of ‘social eating’.

When we began to offer ‘Bite & a Blether,’ a time and space for the community to sit down for a meal with others, this was the beginnings of an unexpected and evolving food activity. After a few months we started to offer a community pantry and we also focussed on reducing food waste, a winning combination.

Join us and you’ll become part of a team, that works together to bring our community together around food.
