your local community kitchen needs you!




creating lasting and sustainable solutions to poverty, hunger and social injustice

 Calling all supermarkets, restaurants, farmers and wholesalers!  The Manna Community Kitchen will be staging a rescue operation to save your unsold fruit and veg from the bin! 


There are so many ways that you can help the Manna Community Kitchen.  Do you have spare kitchen space? Or utensils going to waste? Are you a writer or blogger who can help us with publicity and promotion?


Do you have access to a vehicle?  Or even a few hours to spare?


Whether you are an amiable agriculturist, a budding baker or a creative cook, the Manna Community Kitchen has something for you.  So long as you are passionate about combating food poverty, reducing waste and strengthening communities then we want to hear from you. 


The Manna Community Kitchen is always looking to partner with like minded groups of people.  If you or your organisation would like to get involved then please drop us a line. 


The Manna Community Kitchen does not believe in cooking for one. 

Working in partnership with local businesses, charities, church groups and community centres, we create lasting and sustainable solutions to poverty, hunger and social injustice.

We are currently facing a global starvation epidemic.  We live in a time of overabundant food production but despite this almost a billion people go hungry every day.  These figures are no longer relegated to the developing world either: in the UK today, 1 in 5 children are now living below the poverty line.  Food poverty is defined as ‘an inability to acquire or consume an adequate or sufficient quantity of food’ and ‘an uncertainty that one will be able to do so’.  This is where The Manna Community Kitchen comes in. 

Our vision is simple.  We round up, recycle, reallocate and redistribute surplus food; therefore making it readily available to those who need it most.
