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

HLP Christmas Roast

A team of some of our Food Ambassadors had great fun in our Healthy Living Kitchen, testing out and creating this dish for our special Christmas recipe kit.

In this recipe, we have given you the option to serve it with a simple tomato sauce to serve alongside your favourite roast veg.   Ingredients 1 red or white onion, chopped 1 large sweet potato 1 tin of green or brown lentils 150g pumpkin seeds 1 tablespoon...

Guyanese Chow Mein

This recipe is by food ambassador Roselyn and has been a hit at many of our events. Roselyn says: ‘I grew up in Guyana seeing my family and friends making it and grew to love the different flavours – different from the stir fries you get in the UK. It’s healthy, quick and very filling’.   Ingredients 2 peppers (preferably 1 red and 1 yellow) 300 grams of noodles (e.g. wholewheat or egg noodles) 3 spring onions, finely sliced 150g frozen mixed veg (e.g. peas sweetcorn) 1 tablespoon of soy sauce  2 tablespoons of oil  Black pepper to taste  Pinch...

Magic Orange Soup

Food ambassadors Rima and Isata cooked up this soup in our ‘Healthy Living Kitchen’ to serve at the ‘Cost of Living’ event. This is food ambassador, Rima’s recipe that she makes as a quick and cheap dish.  The lentils which are full of fibre and protein keep the family full for longer. You can change up recipe, and try with different kinds of leftover veg.     Ingredients  6 carrots, chopped   200 grams of red lentils   1 tin of tomatoes  1 large onion, finely chopped  4 garlic cloves, grated  1 thumb sized piece of ginger, grated  1 teaspoon of...
