Community Kitchen Project

Nov 7, 2016 | VCS

Green Corridor is running a questionnaire to establish potential interest in the use of a proposed new community kitchen at their Learning & Development Site, located on Stanwell Moor Road, TW19 6BS near Heathrow T5.
The questionnaire shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete and all personal information will be kept confidential. The deadline for the questionnaire to be completed is the 30th November 2016.
The proposed community kitchen will be a state of the art facility used to deliver training and development programmes for their disadvantaged young people with special educational needs and learning differences.
Green Corridor grow lots of vegetables in their polytunnel and growing plots on site which they currently have to give away! However their young people have expressed a real desire to learn how to pick, cook and serve the produce they have so lovingly grown in order to learn new life skills and to consider future employment in the field of catering and hospitality.
This is the basis of their bid to the Big Lottery Fund to create a new community kitchen that they are also keen to make available for use by local groups in the area.
Use of the community kitchen will be free for groups located in the 20% most deprived areas of West London and for all others there will be a nominal fee per session. They do have a minibus that can be available for pick up and drop off back to your local area.
The community kitchen will have 4 work-stations with space for up to 8-10 people and will be fully equipped with appliances and utensils, a full kitchen guide, including instructions, health & safety and standards of hygiene.
Their horticulture tutors can also give you friendly advice on how to grow your own food in your gardens, allotments, patios, window boxes and community spaces.
Although you will be required to bring along your own ingredients you can make use of the seasonal produce they grow on site. From April next year this will also include harvesting of locally grown oyster and shiitake mushrooms from a social enterprise they are starting up on site.
