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.

LEAP into healthy living

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.

One of our members, Linh showed parents how to make these Vietnamese summer rolls (also known as salad)  alongside this  tomato noodle soup at one of our cultural cookalongs at St Stephen’s children’s centre. They are called summer rolls because they are so fresh, and are enjoyed all year round, not just in the summer. In Vietnam the actual translation is summer rolls. This is a such a great dish to get your kids involved with preparing and getting them to eat more veg. Check out more of Linh’s food on her instagram page: @linushkaskitchen         Serves...
