Members of the Muslim and Christian community have banded together to produce a special meal for homeless and needy people.
During the Muslim fasting festival of Ramadan, which began last week, St Luke's Church in Norfolk Road, Maidenhead, will play host to a meal each week which offers food from the traditions of both faiths.
The first gathering took place on Tuesday last week and saw 38 people enjoy a main course of baked potatoes with a range of fillings followed by a box of food many Muslims eat when they break their fast in the evenings during Ramadan, including dates and shortbread.
The gathering will take place every Tuesday for the five weeks of Ramadan.
