In response to the COVID19 emergency Made In Hackney has paused its community cookery classes to launch a temporary direct to door, free meal delivery service for households struggling to access food.


See Our Advice Page

Where Will We Deliver Food?


Initially the service will be exclusively for Hackney residents. We aspire to launch in neighbouring boroughs but will need to fundraise a lot more to be able to do this. Partner organisations, funders and councils can get in touch with us to discuss funding this work.

What Are We Delivering?

6 x pre-cooked, nutritious plant-based meals per week for each household member who needs it.

The meals will change daily and will include but not be limited to British, Chinese, Indian, Caribbean, French, West African, Turkish and Moroccan dishes. We understand the importance of culturally appropriate food so when we do our welfare calls we will ask for your dish recommendations and try to work them in to the service.

As meals will arrive in batches they will need to be stored in a refrigerator or freezer.

To ensure high standards of food safety the meal will arrive cold so will need to heat it up before eating.

Allergens: All meals will be 100% plant-based and free of common allergens: Dairy, Sesame and Nuts. If you have other allergies, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them. We can also do non-spicy meals on request.

Is the Service Free?


Thanks to the kind donations from the people of London we have fundraised to make this a free service for the people that need it most during the COVID19 emergency. You are very welcome to make a small donation in exchange for your meals if you are able. But this is not expected. For hygiene reasons our couriers will not accept cash. To make a donation visit our crowdfunder!

When Will You Deliver?

Tuesdays between 4.30pm - 7.30pm (3 meals)

Thursdays between 4.30pm - 7.30pm (3 meals)

We apologise we cannot give a specific time slot.

How Long Will the Service Last For?

Until the end of March 2021 and then we will review.

We hope you enjoy your food!
