Croydon Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We started this crowdfunding idea to find and fund a venue which we had found hard to come by to date. However, in a stroke of good fortune, Pete Leveson, at South Norwood Baptist Church offered to share with us their tremendous facilities, which means we can now look to get bigger and better. We want to do several things, from small to quite big, and this crowdfunding should enable all those things. We need some equipment, boring stuff for health and safety, but all very important. We need to get loads of printing done to spread the word so we can get as many people joining in as we can, so we can have as big affect as possible. Finally, probably later this year, we want to buy an old food van, so we can expand the project and reach those people within our community that are unable to come to us. Thanks for your time. The South Norwood Community Kitchen Team

What we'll deliver:

  • Cook for free for the local community
  • Encourage community spirit
  • Purchase a food truck
  • Purchase Equipment
  • Reduce local food waste

Why it's a great idea:

We will be bringing people together. Putting a bit of love back into the community, helping people who need helping. Encouraging a social environment and empowering people to get back on their feet. We hope to branch out from the kitchen to more days a week, and to have spin off outreach and community projects, but it all starts here.

Steps to get it done:

  • Creation of dry stores
  • Publish Advertising
  • Purchase a food van
  • Purchase equipment
  • Six Months Rent @ The Church
