“I have some food in my bag for you
Not that edible food, the food you eat
No, I have some food for thought.”
– Erykah Badu
Food For Thought is our take on afternoon tea, an opportunity to feed our bellies and minds every Thursday here at Impact Hub Birmingham.
Join us as we gather around the workbench and discuss key themes and ideas each week, hosted by the community over tea and cake!
This week’s Food for Thought session is hosted by Kirsty Douglas. Kirsty is a volunteer for CoppaFeel, a breast cancer awareness charity. Boobettes as they are known, are a group of women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 35, have had preventative surgery, a breast cancer scare at a young age or a strong connection to the disease.
Kirsty was 33 years old when she was diagnosed with stage 3 lobular breast cancer, with a mass tumour of 12cm. She didn’t realise anyone her age could get breast cancer and she certainly had never been told to check herself.
Kirsty will be using her story to inspire others to think differently about their lives and bodies, educating people about the importance of getting to know your boobs now, and making it a lifelong habit. She shall be armed with hand outs, stickers, her giant boob (of course) and will be more than happy to answer any questions at the end of the session.
The CoppaFeel Boobette service is free of charge, and if you would like to support them with a donation to allow them to continue this service across the UK, reaching as many people as possible, you can donate via this link here.
Food for Thought is free for Impact Hub Birmingham members to attend and £5 for non members.
If you’re not a member, you can book your ticket via eventbrite here.
If you are interested in hosting a conversation or activity of your own at a future Food For Thought, please do get in touch.
