WHO WE ARE

Connecting through food

The Coexist Community Kitchen is a non-profit cookery school in Easton, Bristol. Our main aim is to use food as a vehicle to work with people who experience social marginalisation in our society.

We believe that everyone should be able to have spaces in which they can share food together, learn and teach skills and create strong connections with others.

 

We see food as the most simple and easy way to support each other in building a stronger, healthier and more joyful society.

WHAT WE DO

We run cookery classes and events as a way to bring people together and create a space where people feel dignified and valued.

 

We learn, teach and share cookery skills but so much of it is about building resilience through sharing spaces, skills and laughter.

COMMUNITY COOKERY CLASSES

Our weekly outreach cookery classes are run in partnership with Bristol-based drug and alcohol services, mental health organisations, and refugee and asylum seeker groups.

 

The time in the kitchen provides an opportunity for people to learn and share skills around food, build connections and feel at home.

FOOD PROVISION

In response to the announcement of the first lockdown in March 2020, we started working with the Caring in Bristol, Bristol Food Union and National Food Service providing an emergency kitchen service.

 

Since then, we’ve prepared and cooked over 30,000 nourishing meals that are packed and delivered to hundreds of people who need them within our community each week.
