We help Hackney residents cook up a storm

Date: Thursday 02 July 2020


Our East London team has helped a community cookery group provide Hackney residents with the skills to cook healthy plant-based meals. 

Made In Hackney is a community kitchen that educates local residents in creating healthy, sustainable and affordable food. Run by a team that is passionate about the environment, the classes are plant-based and help equip participants with the skills they need to create a range of affordable and nutritious meals. 

Our team donated £500 towards a new cooker at Made in Hackney’s community kitchen, which was used in their cookery classes prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The classes promote, inspire and teach cooks to create sustainable, ethical and delicious food that is good for people and the planet.

Sarah Bentley, Founder and Project Director at Made In Hackney, said: “We’re so grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their kind donation which went towards a brand new oven in our community kitchen. We had been using the oven in our cookery classes, which have been on hold since the COVID-19 outbreak but are very much looking forward to putting them to good use once more, when it is safe to do so.”
