Open Kitchen Manchester
Ordinarily, Open Kitchen are a social enterprise who create amazing meals from food which would otherwise be thrown away. During lockdown they have transformed themselves to a delivery service, tirelessly providing meals on an industrial level for the vulnerable across Manchester.While there have been many food traders who have made the switch to delivering their meals and many who have supported their communities, Open Kitchen are currently providing over 11,000 meals a week to those in need, making sure no-one goes hungry. The scale of both their commitment and the end result and been awe-inspiring to many.
