This project was funded on 23 Jan 2019!

The S4L Anniversary Garden Open Day at Michael Stewart House will be a great celebration for our participants, our supporters, sheltered housing residents and the local community close to North End Road and the Clem Attlee Estate. In the early months of 2019 we will add a kitchen garden to the already established space at Michael Stewart House and open to the local community for a day in April 2019 for garden 'tasters' and provide international food and information from local organisations who join us in tackling isolation and loneliness. Soup4Lunch Ltd is a local social enterprise creating Kitchen Gardens and Community Cafes in sheltered housing and community centres in Hammersmith and Fulham. Our main aim is to provide a safe space to join together to help lessen isolation and loneliness. The kitchen garden provides activity and common language and the community cafe provides great food and conversation as well as good nourishment.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide food and fun at a garden open day
  • Create a kitchen garaden
  • Open a space not normally seen by the community
  • Recognise volunteers

Why it's a great idea:

Soup4Lunch is going to shout about it’s five year anniversary! Hundreds of people in Hammersmith and Fulham have contributed to creating the Soup4Lunch project, from a simple pilot in December 2012 to more than a dozen projects running today on a weekly basis. We want to celebrate our success, show off our work, make some outrageously great food and recognise all the wonderful people who have helped us make this such a brilliant project. Our open day will celebrate all the best and demonstrate this amazing resource to the community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Recruiting 5 new community volunteers
  • Adding two new Soup4Lunch project s in the Borough

We hope that by opening up our garden we will encourage more community involvement and volunteering, a greater awareness of how isolation and loneliness can have an impact on lives, and how that can be turned around by working together and having shared experiences.
