Phoenix Outdoor Kitchen will bring people in the local community of White City together, acting as a social magnet, to cook and enjoy FREE healthier food.

White City Delivery stage

pledged of £56,848

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The farm is currently used by over 500 people per week, all from the local community of Wormholt and White City. All the activities that we provide are free, reflecting local depravation.The Outdoor Kitchen will provide a new dimension to the farm, allowing us to grow and cook local produce with the residents and help make the community a healthier place. We will run evening and weekend cookery classes, festivals, open evenings, Youth Club cooking activities, cooking with different community groups and cultures. The project will be run using volunteers assisting the full time time community Food Grower and Nutritionist.

What we'll deliver:

  • Build an Outdoor Kitchen on the site of the farm, to teach local people how to cook healthy food using local produce.

Why it's a great idea:

Currently there is a problem with obesity and unhealthy eating within the school and the community as a whole. There is no supermarket on the estate and the only food eateries are a fried chicken shop and a traditionally fried food English cafe. On entry to school in year 6, a quarter of students are classified as obese, with child dental health also being worse than the national average.

Residents in Wormholt & White City have poorer general health compared to both the borough and London averages, with 32.5% reporting not good health. A further 17.1% of residents are suffering long term illness, this is also 4% higher than the borough as a whole.

Steps to get it done:

  • Engage with the local community by hosting fundraising events on the farm.
  • The kitchen has been designed by architectural practices as recommended by Spacehive
  • The kitchen will be a hub for healthy eating, food education and cultural cohesion.
  • Working with partners such as QPR and local primary schools to raise the profile of the project.
