Help make Tower Hamlets a great place to live, work and play
KICK! ASC ALL SAINTS E14 E14 is a new community hub, gallery and café plus food waste prevention initiative providing jobs, volunteer and training opportunities, nutrition and healthy eating courses along with job creation for the Poplar and surrounding community in Poplar E14. We will turn an unused space in the crypt of ALL SAINTS CHURCH in Poplar E14 into a community hub, café and gallery and events sp creating jobs for the community whilst diverting foodwaste from landfill. It is a collaboration between Tim Barklem of Rejuvenate UK CIC and ALL SAINTS CHURCH to create a community hub, events and gallery space and vegan community cafe called VIVA! VEGAN that takes waste food from local department stores and delivers high quality vegan food made from waste for the community and serviced by local disadvantaged young people from the local community thus not only providing fresh organic vegan food along with courses on Nutrition (thus also educating the public and local young people)
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
