About the opportunity

Your challenge, if you accept it, is to create a nutritious meal from surplus food, that also looks really good. With your help we can reduce loneliness, food waste and poverty. At least once in a week. We need groups of 6 people to help us invite guests, , pick up food, cook and deliver a nutritious course meal to the community. These are lonely, elderly people and people on a low income. We gather surplus food from nearby and use it to cook our delicious our meals. You'll learn new skills and meet new people all from our lovely location of The London Cooking Project. So, come and join us, a team of local volunteers and lets give all food the home of a hungry belly #nowaste

About The Battersea Canteen

The Battersea Canteen is a regular community kitchen for people living in the Battersea Area needing friendship, comfort and food. We collect perishable food from local green grocers and supermarkets and transform it into a delicious 3/4 or 5 course meal - We just want to use it all up. We work with local people to develop cooking skills and social skills and hope to train young people in the future too. You can also sign up here:
