OUR CURRENT RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Coexist Community Kitchen is switching its service into an EMERGENCY kitchen where we will cook food, package it; ready to be picked up and delivered to the most vulnerable. This food will be cooked food ready to be eaten that day or ready to be frozen and will have instructions on how to microwave or reheat.
We will be cooking hundreds of meals per week (Commencing 24.03.20) for as long it is needed. This week, today and tomorrow are hard times. But let's do this together in whatever way we can.
We are looking into grants right now that are related to COVID 19 in order to ensure we can cook for people who need it the most and that there are no barriers to them, but that we can also maintain the service financially and emotionally for as long as possible.
Everyone is experiencing difficulties in this time, however, if you feel you can, please make a donation to help support those who need it most.
Sending you all lots of love and care,
Coexist Community Kitchen team

COEXIST COMMUNITY KITCHEN is a non-profit cookery school.
Our main aim is to use food as a vehicle to work with people who experience social marginalisation in our society.
We mainly run cookery classes as well as running events, catering and hiring out our space in order to support us in our social outreach work.
Our main passion is- everyone should be able to have spaces in which they can share food together, learn and teach skills and create strong connections with others. Eating. Laughing, learning and sharing. We see food as the most simple and easy way to support each other in building a stronger, healthier and more joyful society. We have been doing this for 7 years and have worked with 1000s of people across Bristol and the South West. This has been through small cookery classes where people learn and share skills around food but most importantly meet each other, build connections, share food and feel at home. We have built strong partners with many organisations in Bristol that want to do the same- drug and alcohol services, mental health organisations, refugee and asylum seeker groups. Over the years we have been doing this, we have seen people, including ourselves, experience great change, build friendships and feel part of our home.
