Providing affordable food for those in need

Super Kitchen 4.

A new voluntary group is proving they have the recipe for success by providing affordable, tasty food for people in Gainsborough.

 

Super Kitchen is run by a team of volunteers who make fresh meals for sale at cheap prices.

 

Sheila Goodall, the project manager at the Super Kitchen, said: “We’re passionate about working on the (Uphill) estate. There are more than 40 Super Kitchens in the East Midlands and we’re aiming to do more around Lincolnshire.”

 

“The meals we make are made out of surplus food, the food that supermarkets don’t want. We get this food donated to us from numerous places including Tesco and Fair Share a food supply organisation for the vulnerable and needy.

 

“We provide a lot of food at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre and we hold Light Bite Lunches every Monday at midday. We also hold the Super Kitchen Social Eating Event every other Friday at 4pm for three courses at £2.50 per adult with accompanied kids under 15 years eating for free.

 

“The volunteers who help out here all get a qualification in first aid and food hygiene so there’s a real incentive to get involved and improve on your skills.”

 

“The unique thing is that the Super Kitchen events is that they bring people together, all generations come along to the events and it’s great to see people socialising when they wouldn’t normally.”
