About Wendy and Nourish Catering

Wendy runs the Tarner Community Cafes in Brighton, where she uses local, seasonal foods to create a diverse range of meals, at a reasonable price so that it can be available to all members of the local community. The cafes work with volunteers with mental health and learning difficulties, providing them with training, and building their confidence to move into employment or other opportunities.

Most of her food is sourced by Nick from Fin and Farm who collects fresh vegetables, meat, and dairy products from local farms in Sussex & Kent with good ethical methods, as well as being very tasty. We’re also sourcing local Kent and Surrey produce for the festival.

More recently, Wendy started to provide catering for weddings, events and crew catering, building a business, Nourish Catering, which also provides an additional income which helps sustain her work within the community. Having recently bought a trailer, she is now expanding to larger events this summer. And we’re delighted to welcome her and her team to Hacklands.
