About

We are partnering with Lambeth Council to pack and deliver food parcels for shielded and isolating residents, as well as people who are struggling.

We are cooking at our Healthy Living Kitchen at Southwyck Community Centre. We are making deliveries to people who have recently had a baby, people who live locally and need help with accessing food, and young people who normally receive free school meals.

Healthy recipes, free fruit & veg, and fun activities like yoga and Zumba for you and your little ones (age 0-3).

Our mission

Health

Promoting healthy lifestyles is at our core. Encouraging, training, informing, supporting. 

Activities

We offer activities which promote the health and wellbeing of everyone in the community.

Sustainability

Our projects are self-sustaining. For the community, by the community.

Community

The neighbourhood is the beating heart of our project. People having control of their own wellness. 

We believe

We believe that greening our environment and working towards healthier lifestyles are great ways to bring people together and create real social change. Our team has set up community gardens, started cooking projects and food businesses, and redistributed tonnes of surplus food. We have seen the benefits of creating communities of people who do things together to look after themselves, their families and their neighbours.
As health costs rise and government funding declines, there has never been a greater need for people to do things for themselves, to look after their own wellbeing. Also, the recent surge in awareness of the urgent need to address climate change means there is a massive willingness in our communities to take action. We are passionate about improving our environment and know that we can feel healthier and even have fun as a result.

Beetroot dahl

There were many requests for this beetroot dahl recipe made by Alison, one of our chefs at the Healthy Living Kitchen. This recipe makes for a vibrant and nutritious meal. The brilliant thing about it is that it’s very versatile. You can use different types of vegetables and lentils, this recipe uses red lentils as they are popular and the quickest to cook. When we made this in our kitchen we used  3 types – red lentil, mung beans and yellow moong dahl.  For this recipe we kept it to one for the sake of simplicity, however you can experiment...

How to cook celeriac

We have been getting a lot of celeriac lately in our Healthy Living Kitchen and people often ask us what they should do with it…    Celeriac is a round, knobbly root vegetable about the size of a small melon. It is pale brown on the outside and cream-coloured inside. It sometimes comes with the leaves still attached, which look (and taste) like dark green celery . The heavier celeriac feels for its size, the fresher it is, so flex your muscles or bring a trolley to get it home – celeriac is delicious and worth picking up.   What...
