The Made in Hackney food kitchen launch crowdfunding campaign to raise £12,500 – and are now less than £2000 from their target

Made in Hackney – a pioneering eco-community kitchen that offers food growing and cooking classes to groups such as young carers, low-income families, people in care and people with long term health problems – have launched a campaign on Crowdfunder.co.uk to raise £12,500 to carry on the work we do for people in the Hackney area.

Since launching in October 2012 with the Big Lottery Local Food Grants scheme, we have worked with a number of national and local organisations such as Action For Children, Off Centre, Inspire!, Catch 22 and Hackney Social Services to offer courses to their service users in healthy, affordable cookery skills.

We are now less than £2000 from our target with just six days of the campaign to go, and would be grateful for any donations members of the Yeah! Hackney forum can provide.

Sarah Bentley, Made in Hackney founder, said: “Without a healthy planet, how can we be healthy people? This is something a lot of people and organisations seem to miss and that’s why it’s so essential we have the funds to teach both things side by side in our kitchen.”
