A group of five volunteers prepared vegetable stew, cake and biscuits at north London’s JW3 to feed 40 vulnerable Camden residents during the pandemic.
JW3’s kitchen was reopened on Wednesday for the project organised in partnership with the food poverty charity FEAST!, which uses surplus food to prepare meals for the homeless.
Raymond Simonson, CEO of the cultural centre in Finchley Road, which was forced to close temporarily last month to halt the spread of Covid-19, tweeted that he was “proud” to be teaming up with the charity, which he described as being among “our fave local volunteer” organisations.
The meals, prepared using ingredients donated by local supermarkets through a food rescue programme, were delivered to vulnerable residents identified by local action groups and Camden Council.
JW3’s social action programmer Jacob Forman said on Thursday: “It was brilliant to be able to use JW3’s space to make a tangible difference to our local community”.
