Hungerford High Street will be filled with the aroma of more than 50 stalls providing everything from pizza to curry to gourmet burgers to vegetarian specialities.

The festival is a real family event and there is a lemon eating competition for kids, plus a chilli eating competition for adults, and children are invited to make their own healthy food creation with staff from Hungerford Nursery. Plus, there’s also a kids’ cook off event where children will be invited to cook with Wiltshire chef and author Lucinda Miller.

Sustainability is also very much a theme of this year’s event and visitors will be able to buy food in bulk in their own containers from the Lonely Lentil zero waste stall and a new company inspired by last year’s Hungerford Food Festival, called Beer, there and everywhere will be selling refillable three-pint beer bottles.

There will be information on how to use less plastic and how to make your own compost to the benefits to health, the countryside and the climate from eating venison. Attendees can learn how to avoid cling film and other plastic disposables by making beeswax eco wraps with Little B, a local maker of beeswax food wraps, an eco-friendly, plastic-free way to keep food fresh.

As well as having a range of her wax wraps for sale, Little B Founder Claire Black will be offering hands-on demonstrations where participants can choose from a selection of fabric prints and sizes and make a wax wrap to take home.

Visitors can bring along their own apples to make into juice, and also watch rapeseeds get pressed into oil.

Hungerford Food Festival is a family-friendly community event that has been celebrating local food producers and artisans since 2009. The event supports  Hungerford Environmental Action Team (HEAT) and is sponsored by Doves Farm, Blandy’s at Inglewood and the Media Marketing Co.
