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.
Now, 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 us by purchasing meal vouchers via our online shop. For each £5 donated, you will fund a restaurant-quality meal for a local resident in need, plus additional activities to lift the spirits such as live music and cooking demonstrations. For £25, you can feed a family of 5.
“Having meals delivered to me now is very important because it keeps my morale up and makes me feel like I haven't been forgotten.”
Susan Darocha, Trellick Tower Resident
Sponsor a service
Your business can have a huge, positive impact on the community. In sponsoring a service you can help supercharge our efforts, so that
People’s Kitchen can bring many smiles, chats and wholesome meals to our neighbours in need.
“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.”
