The Cooking for Community Appeal

About this appeal

The Cooking For Community project is a new stable project which is expanding on our culture of food sharing to work with Wandsworth Council in London. This project is being developed to address two social issues - the first is food poverty and the second is social isolation. Many people do not get the opportunity to eat healthy nutritious food and to share a meal with someone else.

What we are looking to do

We are looking to provide a cooked meal or lunch at least once a week to people in the local community who can either come to eat with others for a lunch served at the ROSE Centre in Nine Elms or - as we intend to provide a take away service as well - collect lunch which can be shared with someone else who cannot make it to the ROSE Centre. Therefore we are working to provide lunch to people who are housebound, socially isolated or affected by social anxiety and who cannot deal with eating in a large group.

What we need

Below we give a summary of what we need to develop this project further.

  • catering standard stainless steel cooking pots
  • kitchen utensils
  • cutlery
  • crockery for serving lunch at the ROSE Centre
  • disposable containers for take away service
  • detergents and hygiene products
  • volunteers
