Help us launch the new Blend Kitchen. Be part of an incredible team creating work and life opportunites for those that need it most.

After 2 incredible years at our previous home on Pinstone Street in Sheffield, this year we're taking Blend Kitchen to the next level but we need your help.

Here's what we've achieved so far:

1. We've secured the location

After our lease came to an end during lock down at our former home on Pinstone Street, we've secured a prime spot on Ecclesall Road next to the old wards brewery in the ground floor of our supporters, educational publishing company Twinkl. We're going to transform an empty shell into this state of the art all day dining and events space serving great food, playing great music and providing life changing opportunities for people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities, parents returning to the world of work and people who have overcome substance misuse and homelessness. Check out the amazing artists image of the new site. 


2. We've built the team

We've assembled an incredible team to make the new Blend Kitchen site a success. The team include award winning design agencies 93ft and Front Ideas, Sheffield music legend and Blend Kitchen patron Richard Hawley, hospitality experts including Justin Rowntree (founder of Silversmiths) and Richard Smith (Thyme Cafe, Graze Inn and many more) and the incredible team of Blend Kitchen staff and volunteers as featured in the film above. 


3. We know what  we do works

After 2 years working hard to train the team, develop our menus and build our brand, we've shown the impact Blend Kitchen can have. From creating jobs for people who may not otherwise have got them to providing a safe space for people from all walks of life to meet, Blend Kitchen is a truly unique space to enjoy some great food and come away knowing you've helped someone move forward with their life. 


4. We've secured the majority of the funding 

Despite securing well over £100k in funding,investment and pro bono work to launch the new Blend Kitchen site, we're not quite there yet. Please donate and help us create this incredible space, keeping money in Sheffield and making all our lives a little bit better off.
