FOOD PROVISIONS SERVICE
At beginning of the coronavirus lockdown in March 2020, in line with government requirements, we halted all of its primary services, cookery classes and events at the Coexist Community Kitchen.
We started working with the Caring in Bristol, Bristol Food Union and National Food Service- providing an emergency kitchen service, preparing and cooking nourishing meals every week to be packed and delivered to hundreds of people who need them within our community.
We now continue this as one of our activities- every single Wednesday our amazing team- cook delicious food for anyone who may need it.
Since we began, with the help of a small team of volunteers and regular food donations from Edible Futures, Elm Tree Farm and St Werbergh's City Farm, as well as several local allotments, we have been able to send out thousands of meals to people across Bristol. These meals can be eaten immediately or frozen and stored for another mealtime.
We plan to continue this service for as long it is needed within the community.
Please get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to pick up some of these meals for free or a donation :)
HOW YOU CAN HELP
At this time, our main sources of income have been cut. We cannot safely reopen our kitchen space to the general public for paid events and cookery workshops. Event catering bookings have also reduced considerably. However, there are still some ways that you can help:
Order from our Takeaway Supper Club menu
All money raised from our new weekly takeaway supper club helps to support our COVID-19 food response and also help keep the kitchen afloat as we continue to work through the coronavirus pandemic.
The new menu launches every Monday and each week is hosted by a new guest chef who serves a new style of cuisine. Remember to order early to avoid disappointment.
Make a small donation
Even the smallest donation can go a long way to helping support our ongoing work here at the Community Kitchen. Find out how you can make a one-off donation or become a Community Kitchen regular donor.
