Meet our ChangeX100 starters – #2 Jenny Bergin will host a Street Feast

My name is Jenny. I live in Clonmullen in Edenderry. I work in childcare. I have 3 children and 9 chickens! I have a huge range of interests and hobbies that range from interior design, gardening, baking and art.

What I love about Street Feast

I only learned recently about ‘Street Feast’ and thought it would be a perfect idea for our neighbourhood. I have about 40 people so excited about our first Street Feast here in Clonmullen. We are a close knit bunch, everyone looks out for each other. The community spirit is amazing.

I personally know it will be a huge success and the rain won’t even put us off. Already it is something we are planning, ideas flying and a team of volunteers. Everyone will help out and it will be a day to appreciate each other and the wonderful bonds and friendships we have.

What I find most challenging

I don’t imagine organising it will be a challenge as we work well together as a team. The only challenge I imagine will be getting final numbers and hoping to cater successfully for each individual’s taste.

We’ll designate chores and dishes to each household and get a fund in place for the extras.

What I’m good at

I am good at organising and catering for large numbers so I hope we don’t run into any major problems (the local supermarket is only 2 minutes away if we do!)

What I love about my community

I love my community, could never imagine living anywhere else. ‘Street Feast’ will bring us together with music and laughter, old and young, and I hope it will be the start of something that we’ll remember fondly and look forward to doing again next year……
