Open Kitchens Update

Date: 17/08/2020

NextEnergy Foundation (NEF) is supporting Open Kitchen’s Holiday Hunger programme to provide meals to children who were previously receiving free school meal vouchers over their Summer holidays. With NEF’s donation 10,000 meals will be prepared by eight Nottingham-based restaurant and hotel kitchens.

Alongside the distribution of these meals, Open Kitchens is running some activity days in conjunction with Nottingham Forest Community Trust & The Greenwood Academies Trust.  Over the summer there will be nearly 500 children whom local schools have identified as suitable for this sort of support. At the end of each event the children take away 2 meals each plus a drink, fruit, snack and activity book from FareShare Midland.
