Every Monday for the last five years we collect a donation from Beanies Wholefoods for our free weekly cafe. At the moment we're feeding around 90 people each week - asylum seekers, refugees and those in food poverty - delivering to their doors. Beanies are keeping us all going with amazing donations like this every week. Today it's Mediterranean bean stew. Thank you Beanies you're amazing.
Last Monday we sent 240 meals and lovely food parcels out to 95 people across Sheffield. Huge thanks this week to Beanies Wholefoods, The bhaji shop and a generous private donation.
Hi folks. For the last two Mondays we have been busy cooking and delivering food to our clients. As well as cooked meals we have been able to give out surplus fruit and veg that we receive from Beenies and bits of essentials from Foodhall. Today we were also supplied with cooked soup from Cole's Corner which made a great addition. Thanks to all who are helping to make this happen.
If you or someone you know would benefit from support please contact us via Facebook initially and we will take it from there. Stay safe guys!
Here at Open Kitchen we have been blown away for the support for our project, thanks to Vibrations, Adam Michael Charvet, Tom Collister and all you lovely people who have donated. We just thought we would share with you that today we made 160 cooked meals and food parcels and delivered them to 80 people across Sheffield.
Thank you so much for your support, and just to say that if you haven't donated yet and you'd like to, the justgiving page will still be live until midday tomorrow.
Last weeks party was a blast! Thanks to all who partied with us, whether that was just on the audio stream or on Zoom too. Also many thanks to Nez for the beats and MC Sincerity for the mic action! You can listen to last Saturday again here: https://www.mixcloud.com/Vibrations/vibrations-your-house-with-nez-040420/
Please share and spread the word!
Join Chiv this Saturday in the comfort of your own home for a 3 hour Virtual Vibrations! You can expect the usual mashup of styles with a solid focus on the dancefloor. We will be broadcasting live on https://mixlr.com/vibrationsradio and also, for those of you wishing to be more a part of the action you will be able to join us for a dance on Zoom (see info below)
After seeing how popular the last two parties have been, we have decided it would be a good opportunity to raise some money for different causes in need of funds at this difficult time. Each week we will ask our DJ to nominate a cause to raise money for. If you can afford it and would like to chip in as a show of appreciation for your Saturday night's entertainment, that would be brilliant! However we appreciate that many of you are having a tough time yourselves financially at the moment so there is absolutely no obligation to donate. This week, Chiv has chosen Open Kitchen Social Club. You can find out more info about them and donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/vibrations
Here's how to get involved on Zoom....
***Please note: The Zoom part is just for visuals, audio is separate and comes from the link above. Please see instructions below on how to get Zoom up and running on your device....
You'll need to get Zoom, (it's free). This can be on your phone or tablet via App store or Google Play store. Or get it on your laptop. You don't have to create an account. You just need to follow instructions to join a meeting, which will then prompt you to download Zoom and then you're ready.
www.zoom.com (takes you to zoom.us)
Worth doing this well before we start the session because it may take a few mins to download.
Then at 8.00 pm on Saturday click on this link:
If you're already familiar with Zoom and just need the Meeting ID, it's this: 941 791 1902
Password: Vibes@home (you now need this if just using meeting ID)
Once you're in the meeting, at the top right of a laptop/computer screen you'll see an option to have gallery view, (this means you can see everybody in the session). On a phone or tablet the amount of people you see is a bit more limited, but you can scroll left or right to view a few at a time.
Everyone needs to be muted and independently listening to the radio show, but keep your videos on so we can see you dancing!
See you on the dancefloor!
