There are many communities who lack spaces to meet. Adults and children affected by food insecurity often 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 anymore
Brixton People's Kitchen saves surplus food and uses it to bring people together to share knowledge and learn from each other. We create community spaces enabling people to build relationships and tackle loneliness. We offer cooking classes, skills based classes and other arts based mediums to do this. We conduct these from our cafe as well as through our mobile kitchen, bringing the community in from the cold.
We are building a community of people who understand how to cook and eat healthily. We prevent food waste, saving food from landfill 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.
