Sharing meals with our community
Since 2015, we’ve been sitting down with our local community once a month at our People’s Kitchen, where we share a delicious meal cooked up from surplus ingredients.
When the pandemic hit in March 2020, we quickly transformed our monthly community meal into a meal delivery service for vulnerable and isolated local residents, to tackle isolation and food shortages caused by the pandemic.
We run the service on the third Sunday of every month, with our on-site café Panella cooking up delicious and nutritionally-balanced meals with a Sicilian flair.
How you can make an impact
We need your support
Donate tasty meals
You can support a local resident by purchasing meal vouchers via our online shop. For each £5 donated, you will fund a wellbeing package for a vulnerable individual; including a restaurant-quality meal, plus additional treats to lift the spirits such as recipe cards and handmade gifts. For £25, you can feed a family of 5.

Marjorie Leonidas, Taggstar CEO and People's Kitchen sponsor
It helped me to be more understanding of what people’s personal circumstances were during the pandemic, and how important community is to those who fall into the ‘vulnerable and at risk’ category.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend others getting involved and supporting where they can.
