When: Wed 21st Oct - 18.30

Where: On-line

Engage ran a very successful project during the whole period of the Covid pandemic lockdown connecting residents every Wednesday evening for a take-away meal from a city centre independent restaurant and the very first one was Lunya. You can read more about the project here.

Fast forward to October, and given the current difficulties in the north west with the spike in Covid cases we have decided to organise a one-off shared meal on Zoom in case we find ourselves in another lockdown with all restaurants and pubs closed once more. And even if not we want to meet up with our regulars from Our Big Neighbourhood Dinner Table and hopefully find a few more residents who would like to join us for this special event.

If you want to order in advance, you can pay a visit to Lunya’s online shop and make your selection from their range of frozen and reheatable meals, including tapas, lasagne, and cottage pie. You will need to order the day before at least and then cook the meal in the oven for 25 mins once defrosted.

Alternatively, you can browse Lunya’s Take Away menu, and order for delivery or collection, right up until the day of the meal. This Take Away menu include’s Lunya’s fabulous Paella, which Peter kindly prepared specially for us all those months ago! Remember the Paella is large enough for two people or for two meals if for a one person household!

How does it work?

  1. In the run up to Wednesday 21st – Make your selection from either Lunya’s Deli menu, or Take Away menu. Order for delivery or collection, up to you.
  2. When the food arrives, freeze or refridgerate it, as advised on the packaging.
  3. On Wednesday 21st – Defrost and reheat your food, then join our Zoom Room here at 6:30pm, on your laptop, phone, or tablet.
  4. Connect with your fellow residents, share some stories, and share a meal… and maybe make some new friends!
