COVID-19 Support Directory

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 our communities most vulnerable members.

We have now launched this service but we are still fundraising to reach our target. Please make a donation below.

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. (link to contact page).

What Are We Delivering?

1 x pre-cooked, nutritious plant-based meal for each household member who needs it with a maximum of four meals per household.

To ensure high standards of food safety the meal will arrive cold so recipients need to heat it when they want to eat it.

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

We know there will be a huge demand for this service and we will not be able to deliver to every household that needs it. Once our service is full we will not be able to take on new households. We are so sorry we do not have unlimited capacity.

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?

Monday to Friday between 12noon and 6pm. We apologise we cannot give a specific time slot.

Please Note - We will not deliver food on Saturdays or Sundays.

How Can I Receive a Free Meal?

Please complete our online form to request food for you or someone you know. Please only request a meal if you have absolutely no other way of accessing food during the COVID-19 crisis.

If we are not yet at capacity we will get in touch to let you know you have been added to the service. When we are at capacity there will be a waiting list to add your details too.

How Long Will the Service Last For?

We are currently funded to run this service for 8 weeks. Depending on how the COVID19 situation evolves we may continue to run it after this period but this is funding dependent.

We hope you enjoy your food!
