The Kitchenette Karts

A healthy, sustainable fish & chips truck in the heart of the East End, creating pathways into entrepreneurship for young East Londoners. Established by the award-winning Kitchenette

 

Launched by Kitchenette, the food start-up incubator, the Kitchenette Karts nonprofit food truck will sell delicious, healthy sustainable fish and chips. We’ll promote a healthier fast food option in one of London’s most deprived communities, while training unemployed young people and supporting them into work – or to start up their own micro food enterprise. Since 2014, Kitchenette has worked with dozens of low-income food entrepreneurs, supported them into work placements and matched them with top industry mentors. Now we want to develop a new food truck social enterprise model to invigorate Chrisp Street, an historic local market in Poplar, Tower Hamlets. Our truck will enable young local residents to drive the area’s regeneration, while gaining skills and promoting healthier eating. Working alongside Poplar HARCA, the Prince’s Trust and local Jobcentres, Kitchenette Karts will adapt New York City’s award-winning Drive Change social enterprise model for East London.

Bee-Spoke

At Leaders in community, we want to expand the current apiary in Brownfield community garden. Also, we want to include a training course which will teach volunteers in maintaining a beehive.

We want to expand our current apiary to include a fully weather proof one, with a transparent side. This will ensure our bees are provided with optimum honey producing conditions, and that people visiting the hives can see them at work! We will also use the money raised through Crowdfund London to purchase a honey extracting shelter/storage facility and run a programme of activities for local people to learn more about bee keeping and honey production. This will include training courses for volunteers to become apiarists (bee-keepers), and a children’s curriculum of fun and accessible learning. Our hives will effectively become a bee-learning centre.

Tati

Oitij-jo Collective: needs your support to build a ground-breaking women & young people led café in London’s fast-changing Brick Lane. Cooking & serving authentic Bangla home style recipes.

We need your help to get this off the ground and complete the first phase of work. Please pledge what you can, even £2 will go a long way to helping us hit our target! The first step to get the cafe up & running is to carry out surveys of the building to find out exactly what work needs to be done, & to work with architects, surveyors & other professionals to draw up designs & plans. TATI will be a non-profit social enterprise lead by BAME women & young people in Brick Lane. It will be a cafe inspired by Bangla food: home-made. TATI will source sustainable & organic food, developing & supporting existing suppliers. TATI believes in ‘slow cooked’ food giving time to our health & well-being.
