Date: 12-2pm on Saturday 18th July
Venue: The Chapel Cafe, 10 Bishop Street, Leicester LE1 6AF
Saturday 18th July will see the launch of Leicester’s first Super Kitchen, a social eating space bringing together local people to eat a home-cooked meal “like a family”.
The Super Kitchen movement began in Nottingham supported by Eudaimomia CIO and FairShare East Midlands and has served up over 26,000 meals across eight locations in Nottingham since its inception. Super Kitchen is now expanding beyond the Nottinghamshire borders and is coming to Leicester in conjunction with The Zinthiya Trust.
City Mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, will be officially launching the Leicester Super Kitchen, based at The Chapel Café on Bishop Street in the city centre, on Saturday 18th July with coverage from BBC Radio Leicester. The Super Kitchen will open each Saturday between 12noon and 2pm serving up wholesome home-cooked meals for a nominal charge.
Zinthiya Ganeshpanchan, founder of The Zinthiya Trust, said: “I am delighted to be working with Eudaimonia & FareShare to bring Super Kitchen to Leicester. Through our work running a British Gas Energy Trust Energy & Money Advice Centre we see the need on a daily basis for wholesome meals and companionship. There are many in our community that are isolated and lonely as well as people struggling to make ends meet and afford nutritious food. We hope Super Kitchen will assist in addressing these issues and we look forward to welcoming the local community to The Chapel Cafe”
