Everyone could eat better, feel better and make more sustainable food choices. So with this in mind we’ve made sure Made In Hackney is available to everyone be it through a community class, masterclass, kids festival kitchen or team building event.

In a beautiful virtuous circle of funding – all our paid for services help to facilitate our programme of food growing and cooking classes with groups most in need.

In the Community

Through our community programme we are proud to work with a wonderful range of groups such as young people in care, low income families, pensioners, people in recovery, adults with learning difficulties, people with long term health challenges, or simply individuals looking to connect with their diverse local community and change their eating habits.

We deliver our life changing cookery programme in our Hackney HQ and across London in a range of settings such as schools, children and youth centres, community centres, recovery centres, hostels and cultural spaces.

Past partners include public health, the NHS, national charities, schools, the third sector, housing associations and grassroots community groups.
