It's our birthday month and we'd love it if you could spare a pound for each year we've been around

New stretch target

We use food to bring connection to the socially isolated and help people to eat healthy, whilst developing skills and connections. There's always demand for our services. The more we raise the more people we can support.


Be Enriched Elements turns five and Brixton People's Kitchen 10 this month. That's a total of 15 years of community work in Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth.

Happy Birthday to us!

Over the past 15 years we've worked to bring people together over a delicious meal, curating opportunities for people to cook, share and learn from each other. 

Now more than ever, after a pandemic and as we head into winter, our services are needed. 

Brixton People's Kitchen is moving forward with our new permanent home for the community shop and cafe, while Be Enriched is launching The London Food Bus. Both projects bring affordable, healthy food to areas where access and affordability are an issue, as well as provide training and developmental experiences for people excluded due to age, physical disability or learning ability.

Over 400 people a week benefit from these projects. 

At this time of year, we are also doing what we can to support more people. We've linked up with a referral service to provide free Emergency Festive Boxes to those most in need.

To help us keep on empowering communities, we are asking for £5, £10 or £15, to match each year we have been working to connect our local communities with food and with each other.

£5 goes towards the cost of an Emergency Festive box.

£10 helps provide a weekly shop for a person.

£15 will help us feed an adult and a child, who may otherwise not have access to a healthy meal.

Please donate and help us continue our much needed work. We have match funding arranged, so everything you give gets doubled.
