Food for Thought

Launched in 2014, our hugely popular Food for Thought meetings are held every three months.  They bring together a number of people from charities, community groups, stakeholders and businesses across Mansfield and district.

Guests are invited to natter and network over breakfast, followed by short presentations from speakers on a variety of topics of interest to the sector. 

Past meetings have been themed, with topics including Community Safety, the Refugee Crisis and Support for the Homeless & Vulnerable over Winter.  Other meetings have taken a more general theme, but are no less impactive to those attending.

Meeting dates and times are listed on our events calendar.  If you would like to attend a meeting, or have a slot as a guest speaker, please email Info

Following retirement from employment, Mansfield Voluntary Service (C.V.S) have given me so much help and advice to start up our community group over 10 years ago. We wanted to get the children in the community a new play park. Without the help of Mansfield C.V.S directing us how to write and prepare a Business plan we wouldn’t have achieved the £68,000 to pay for it.
