Architecture firm creates ‘Nourish Hub’ to help tackle food poverty
By Rosie Barker on Thursday, February 24, 2022
In collaboration with UKHarvest, a charity dedicated to reducing food waste, architecture company RCKa has refurbished a row of unoccupied shop units in West London to create a community kitchen and learning space to empower and engage with vulnerable locals.
The space has been designed to help ease the reliance on food banks in the area, as Hammersmith and Fulham has been discovered to be the most dependent borough in the capital.
The Hub aims to go beyond just supplying locals in need with food, as it provides job opportunities within the food industry as well as the chance to learn about nutrition and hone cooking skills.
Designed with openness and accessibility in mind, the space houses a commercial kitchen, teaching kitchen, and a flexible space that can be used as a dining room, classroom, workspace or event venue.
