Alhamdulillah, we are delighted to celebrate the two-year anniversary of The Open Kitchen! We opened our community kitchen in Hounslow back on the 8th of December 2018. Ma sha’ Allah, since then and with your support, The Open Kitchen has been open every single day for the last two years, serving over 100,000 meals so far!
2020 has been a difficult and stressful year, and we’ve all had many obstacles to hurdle. But despite these worries, you continued to support The Open Kitchen, ensuring our vulnerable neighbours didn’t go hungry during the ongoing pandemic.
The Open Kitchen is free and open to all. People from all walks of life have come through the door, helped themselves to a delicious plate of food, and sat down to enjoy their meal - students, elderly people, ex-offenders, refugees, retired army officers, single parents, rough sleepers and many more. The atmosphere is bright and friendly - the room doesn’t seem like a soup kitchen at all - and no one ever needs to explain why they need help. On behalf of everyone whom The Open Kitchen has served, we’d like to say a huge THANK YOU! We pray you see the rewards of your efforts in this life and the next, ameen.
