Helping families to cook and eat together on a budget

As a church with a deep passion for our community, it is vital to us that we are serving local people in practical ways as well as spiritual.

In March 2020 we delivered a covid response programme called 'The Life Café Project', which was an emergency outreach to help alleviate food poverty during the pandemic. This Project took flight beyond our expectations, and by the time we closed this chapter in May 2021 we had provided over 8,000 cooked meals to people in need. We then piloted a recipe box provision which has shaped the next chapter of our community food support. To find out more about The Life Café Project covid response, please click here.

In September 2021, taking lessons from all we have learned from The Life Café Project as well as updated information about the needs in our community,  we created a new programme of food support for vulnerable families in our area. 

In partnership with our local schools, churches and community groups, we come alongside vulnerable local families to provide food support as well as advice and guidance on family budgeting, to create lasting positive change in their lives. We have written our own recipes for 40 family friendly meals, encouraging the use of a variety of affordable ingredients. The recipes are written with children in mind, so that they can help with the cooking too! Our aim is to ensure that families are equipped and encouraged to cook together, making mealtimes a highlight in the household. We know the power that a meal together can bring to relationships, and through keeping families fed our overall heart is to feel their souls.

This community project is facilitated by Celebration Church in partnership with a variety of local partners including Christ Church, Kent Community Foundation, The Rank Foundation and The National Lottery Community Fund.
