Nourish Hub Now Open for lunch!
We’ve teamed up with Hammersmith & Fulham Council to open a new community space on the Edward Woods Estate in its war on food poverty in H&F.
Everyone is welcome to the Hub, which now is now serving lunch Monday to Friday from 12-2pm. We offer delicious meals with a creative menu suitable for everyone including both vegan and vegetarian options. The restaurant is run by professional chefs, an in-house nutritionist, and a dedicated team of volunteers.
Now local groups can come and eat together on a ‘donate as you dine’ basis. This unique idea will help to feed thousands of people in need each week and will sit at the very heart of the community.
The Nourish Hub also provides opportunities for local people to come together to eat, cook and learn about healthy eating with food that is cooked and served daily. We will offer exciting learning and training opportunities for local people in the community.
Located: Nourish Hub, Unit A, Swanscombe House, 1 St. Ann's Road, Shepherd's Bush, London.
“No resident should go hungry in this day and age in one of the wealthiest cities in the world,” said Cllr Ben Coleman, H&F Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care. “We’re determined to put an end to food poverty and give residents the support they need to eat healthily as food bills rocket.”
The new community kitchen forms part of the Nourish project to end food poverty and tackle the climate emergency in H&F. Hammersmith & Fulham are working with our partners to bring greener, healthier, and more sustainable improvements to the local community.
The council is investing £2.3 million in the Nourish project, which is supported by a further £1.1 million secured by the council from the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund.
Our founder and CEO, Yvonne Thomson, said: “The demand on UKHarvest has grown by 300 per cent over the last year. We’re opening the Nourish Hub in partnership with H&F Council to both deliver sustainable social change and tackle climate change.”
The Nourish Hub was also shortlisted for two New London Architecture (NLA) Awards in the Learning category and for the Community prize. To find out more click here
