Geographical remit: 


We believe that everyone deserves to live healthy, happy, flourishing lives. Our work helps people get what they need, find a place to belong and participate, and organise to build community responses to systemic injustice.

South Norwood Community Kitchen (SNCK) is an accessible, welcoming multi-use space run by and for the local community where anyone can come and be part of building new ways to live well together, starting with food. We are open Tuesday-Saturday and engage an average of 150 local people every week.

All of our services are open access and we do not ask anyone for details of their circumstance unless we absolutely need to. There is no limit to how often people can come or make use of our provision.
