THROUGH Food

Coexist Community Kitchen is a non-profit cookery school.

 

Our main aim is to use food as a vehicle to work with people who experience social marginalisation in our society.

 

We mainly run cookery classes as well as running events, catering and hiring out our space in order to support us in our social outreach work. 

 

Our main passion is- everyone should be able to have spaces in which they can share food together, learn and teach skills and create strong connections with others. Eating. Laughing, learning and sharing. We see food as the most simple and easy way to support each other in building a stronger, healthier and more joyful society.

 

We began work in 2011 and have worked with thousands of people across Bristol and the South West. This has been through small cookery classes where people learn and share skills around food but most importantly meet each other, build connections, share food and feel at home.

 

We have built strong partners with many organisations in Bristol that want to do the same- drug and alcohol services, mental health organisations, refugee and asylum seeker groups. Over the years we have been doing this, we have seen people, including ourselves, experience great change, build friendships and feel part of our home.
