Post: Lead Chef, Meal Deliveries, Made in Hackney (MIH)

Location: Queen of Hoxton, 1 Curtain Rd, London EC2A 3JX
Freelance Rate: £20 per hour
Contract Period: 12 months
Reports To: Shaki Mbisa, Head Chef
This is an exciting and rewarding freelance role supporting the MIH Meal Delivery kitchen team to prepare 550-600 meals twice a week (180-200 portions each) to vulnerable and self isolating residents in Hackney (120+ people.)
Since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, Made in Hackney has pivoted from a community cookery school providing face to face cookery classes to a free direct to door meal delivery service for households in need of support. In the early stages of the meal service, MIH partnered with Angelina restaurant to cook the meals and fresh produce was donated by food waste suppliers such as Edible London and City Harvest. Our service is now provided in house with an MIH team responsible for all food preparation in a donated restaurant space in Hoxton. We have now committed to establishing the service as a core part of MIH’s programme of activities for the foreseeable future as funding allows.
You will have experience as a catering chef in a busy kitchen environment. You will have a passion for local, seasonal, organic, plant-based food. You will also be able to communicate effectively the social benefits and Made in Hackney’s USP to partner organisations, beneficiaries and suppliers.
The experience of working for Made in Hackney is varied, unique and rewarding. There is plenty of room for the successful candidate to be creative and bring new ideas for developing the service.
