Challenge

People are hungry and food is going to waste daily. There are many lonely people who lack community spaces to meet. Adults and children living in poverty suffer from a lack of access to food and knowledge to cook or eat well, which can have a detrimental effect on their health. Families don't cook or eat together.

Solution

Brixton People's Kitchen saves surplus food from the bins and redistributes to those in need. We offer a community space to bring people together and build relationships and tackle loneliness. We offer community programming, including teaching young people and children healthy eating habits and cookery classes. We conduct these from our cafe as well as through our mobile kitchen, bringing the programming to the community.

Long-Term Impact

We are building a community of people who understand how to cook and eat healthily. We prevent food waste, saving food from landfills and diverting it to hungry mouths and bellies. We cook with and for around 70 people a week and with continued funding we'll expand our programming to reach more.
