Event Details

Are you involved in a community or emergency food initiative? Or something related? Then we’d love to welcome you!

You are warmly invited to an evening of face-to-face networking – a chance to meet people involved in similar work while enjoying a delicious free meal.

At this event we’re focusing on the added pressure this winter of the cost-of-living crisis, and how you can talk to users of your service about money.

Guest speaker: John Mitchell, Money Guiders Scotland (MGS)

MGS defines “money guiders” as people who talk with others about their money worries and help them. Does this sound like work you do at your organisation? Or would you like to be able to offer this help?

John will share about the support available to you via the Money Guiders network – which is designed to give you the help and information that can make it easier for you to talk to others about their money worries.

The networking session will be an opportunity to:

• make new connections with people from different backgrounds and find out about different food projects around the city

• learn about best practice in offering money guidance and further support available to you via the Money Guiders Network

• promote your organisation’s work

• discuss dignified approaches to food provision

• seek advice from people working in similar area

• enjoy a delicious free meal prepared by someone else!

This event will be catered with vegetarian food. Please state any allergens or dietary requirements during ticket checkout or by e-mailing [email protected]
