Our Community Kitchen exists to reduce social isolation for people of all ages and abilities by bringing together the local community of Haddington and Lammermuir to enjoy good hearty fresh food and allowing friendships to form. OCK runs from Haddington Bowling Club and has organically developed. We also work with our local Area Partnership around holiday hunger for pupils whose families are in receipt of a low income.
We normally bring up to 90 people together each week, however, we have stopped our usual way of working to respond to this horrendous coronavirus. We are still continuing to change people’s lives through food, but in a very different way.
