Get ready for an experience like no other! Join us on Sunday 3rd September at Bradwell Abbey, Milton Keynes for a street feast hosted by Sophie etc., Toybox and MK City Discovery Centre.
Sophie’s Street Feast will bring together an eclectic and exciting mix of local street food vendors, offering an array of delicious dishes inspired by cuisines from around the world, with something for everyone to enjoy. Proceeds from the event will support some of Milton Keynes’ fabulous small charities including Toybox, St Marks Meals and Girl Pack MK.
Sophie Neal, blogger for Sophie etc. says, “Having worked closely with Toybox over the past nine months, I have seen the value of the work they do for street children around the world. St Mark’s Meals and Girl Pack share their values and support the community a little closer to home, so they made a natural partnership for this event. Milton Keynes has a thriving street food scene and I can’t wait to introduce the local community to these charities whilst they enjoy some incredible food!”
Naomi Lewis, Toybox’s Marketing Director, says, “We are so excited to be collaborating with Sophie to host a special street food event at MK City Discovery Centre. Here at Toybox, a vital part of our work is providing children living on the streets with a hot nutritious meal which, for many, will be the only thing they get to eat that day. We are delighted to be able to partner with St Marks Meals and Girl Pack MK – two local charities who hold similar values to us who are doing amazing work to support vulnerable children and families right here in Milton Keynes.”
