One Knowsley is leading a new collaboration of community organisations, social enterprise and independent business to establish The Knowsley Kitchen, a partnership with access to fresh food for all at its heart.
Knowsley Kitchen is inspired by Lucy Antal (Alchemic Kitchen) and Dave Critchley (executive chef at Lu Ban, and founder of The LIDS Delivery Service), this Knowsley enterprise and Knowsley resident have come together with local organisations to build upon the appetite within the voluntary, community and faith sector in Knowsley to build a sustainable food network and respond to communities during Covid-19 and beyond.
Based on mutual aid, boxes of fresh seasonal produce including bread from Homebaked Anfield are just the start. As we develop, our intentions include educational projects, recipes and so much more; but the ultimate aim is to address the current and long-term problem of access to fresh food, whilst reducing food waste and improving health outcomes.
All moneys donated to Knowsley Kitchen via One Knowsley, and from the sales of boxes of fresh local produce will make additional boxes available to support those households who need a little extra help at this point in time. This is about beautiful food, nourishing communities and building a sustainable, educational and delicious approach to enjoying food within, and across, all our communities in Knowsley. Real food for real people.
With many thanks for your donation today and thanks to our founding supporters: St Gabriels’ Church Huyton and the Deanery for Knowsley, Torrington Drive Community Association (TDCA) and Home Start Knowsley.
