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
