Our new kitchen is OPEN!

Despite many challenges (including severe disruption to the water supply in Gorton on our opening week!), our third Community Kitchen in the heart of East Manchester is now OPEN. Our passion means we are cooking healthy homemade food for the people in the community who would otherwise go without.

Our brilliant bunch of volunteer cooks made 213 meals just on the first day. 🍅🥔🥦

We want to thank all our wonderful volunteers and team members who’ve made this possible! Our Crowdfunder is still live if you would like to support our emergency food provision in Gorton.

Listen here to our BBC Manchester Interview.

It’s been a busy weekend!

Our team have spent their Sunday scrubbing, painting and clearing our new space at The Churches, Gorton. As well as ensuring the space is safe for our staff and volunteers to cook from, we collected a LOT of pantry goods kindly donated by Gorton Monastery to help get our emergency food response in Gorton up and running so we can cook and distribute a further 200 meals per day to support those in need of nutritious food.
