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.

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.

We believ

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 have lots of ideas for healthy cooking on a budget

Chocolate courgette muffins

We made these cakes to give out at a family event – a sweet way of getting children to eat more fruit and veg.  When making the cakes, Ayesha one of our Food Ambassadors tried to persuade her son to taste them, but having seen what had gone into them, he said that ‘he didn’t eat that kind of thing’. At the event the next day, he saw lots of other children eating chocolate muffins – not realising they were the same ones, he happily ate one, and it turned out he rather liked them!   Makes approximately 12 cupcakes...

Banana and sweet potato cake

Banana and Sweet Potato Cake   We asked people to guess the hidden veg in this dish at a recent event – noone was able to, and everyone was amazed by how delicious it tasted. It’s a great way of encouraging your family to eat more veg. You could also try adding cocoa powder for a chocolaty version.   Ingredients  2 ripe bananas  1 sweet potato (approximately 300 grams or approximately ) 300 grams of self-raising flour (or mix of self-raising and brown/spelt flour) 1 tablespoon of chia or flaxseeds 1 teaspoon of baking powder 1/2 a teaspoon of bicarbonate...
