Food poverty within the UK is a growing problem with 1 in 5 people now struggling to put food on the table. Despite London being one of the richest cities in the world, there are thousands that experience food poverty on a daily basis, ranging from the homeless to low-income families.
Due to the severity of this issue, Muslim Hands has opened a new community kitchen for the homeless, low-income families and needy children in Hounslow.
The kitchen will be free and open to all, and will serve 100 hot, nutritious meals twice a day, seven days a week. Here, people will be able to enjoy good food in a warm, safe and friendly environment all year round.
Most importantly, the Open Kitchen will provide those experiencing food poverty with a community centred space, where they will be treated with respect and dignity.
