The Kitchen CT9

A community restaurant using food surplus to to provide good food accessible to all.

It’s not just about the food. It’s about using it to bring people together. To practice the art of community. To be a place where people can share their lives with one another.

A kitchen is at the heart of the family providing warmth, and accessible to all, where regardless of age or background, everyone comes together around the shared experience of food.

That’s what we have built.

We know that how much people have to spend on food varies widely which is why all our prices are ‘Pay-As-You-Feel’. This means that those who can, help those who need a little support.

Our ‘dish of the day’ is always inspired by the surplus ingredients we have delivered to us. Being this creative in the kitchen leads to a tasty, nutritious & varied menu.

If you would like to pay it forward, in other words show community to someone with limited finances at the moment, then you can buy a voucher that we can pass on and make someone’s day.
