Pizza in the Park, was an idea during lockdown and social isolation, the idea was simple, we could cook pizza and be able to maintain a safe distance handing it out at the end of a pizza shovel….for free, yes I said free….
Uthink People Developing People would launch its very exciting community project as part of our 2021 summer programme.As well as incorporating community inclusion, structured sports and games for children, and positive mental health and outdoor living for the local community.
Pizza in the Park sets up each Friday in the communities most in need of support from our food for Families Programme. Running from the start of July until the end of August.
In partnership with Javits Gilmerton and Pizza Geeks, we are able to make on-site pizzas with our fabulous outdoor pizza ovens. Allowing the children to pick toppings and sizes. Also providing fresh fruit, water and snacks. Giving neighbours a chance to chat and connect and children the ability to play games using our fantastic sporting equipment. All provided free of charge to the community and delivered by our dedicated staff and volunteers.
Pizza in the Park will see us work across Edinburgh and Fife, a trip up to Aberdeen and even going off piest with a trip down to Skelmersdale in Lancashire to deliver community days to families facing food poverty and isolation. We aim to bring people together, and give families an opportunity to have fun in the heart of their community. By the end of the project we will have provided over 3,500 slices of pizza to children and families. Bringing communities together and providing opportunities is what's at the heart of Uthink.
We're just People Developing People.
