We are a non-profit organisation helping people learn to cook, eat a healthy, sustainable diet, grow more food and waste less of it. Founded by residents in 2003, we now have over 10 staff delivering a range of projects, working with a huge network of partners including community organisations, statutory agencies, businesses, and individual residents. Our work is overseen and steered by our Board of Directors to which members are elected each year at the annual general meeting.
Our vision is healthy, sustainable, fair food for all. We aim to connect and inspire individuals, community groups and organisations. We believe food is more than just fuel, it brings people together and changes lives.
We won ‘Non-profit of the year’ 2019 at the Brighton & Hove Business Awards, ‘Team of the Year’ at the Cost Sector Catering Awards 2019 and the ‘Community Benefit Award’ at the 2019 Southeast RICS awards for building our Community Kitchen. We led Brighton & Hove’s successful submission for ‘Silver Sustainable Food City’ status and are coordinating a bid to go for Gold in 2020. We hold the PQASSO Level 2 quality mark and are proud to be a Living Wage employer.
