Barefoot Kitchen CIC
Project Category: Community Interest Company
Barefoot Kitchen CIC is a small social enterprise that specialises in community food projects, from ‘plot to plate.’ We help groups set up and manage spaces for food growing, teaching basic horticulture and harvesting skills. We work with communities to learn how to use their produce to make healthy and nutritious dishes that can be shared with their families, friends and neighbours. Some of our projects are centred around tackling food waste, some look at food enterprise, and all are underpinned with a commitment to help people tackle climate change, building communities that are resilient, regenerative and revolutionary!
Some of our projects include:
- The Kitchen Table – working with supermarkets and community groups to redistribute surplus food to families
- Alley Pals – regenerating unused alley spaces in Middlesbrough town centre to be used for food growing and social spaces
- Gresham Community Garden Centre – developing a small community-led garden centre from which people can purchase the resources they need to develop their gardens and shared green spaces
- Incredible Edible Middlesbrough – developing a grass roots network of local food growers and enthusiasts and creating new gardens and allotments
- Community Patchwork Orchard – managing a heritage orchard, teaching management skills and ensuring that the fruit is shared within the community
- with Cultivate Tees Valley CIC – design, implementation and delivery of community allotment spaces in Thornaby and Bowesfield in Stockton, working with people, including young people, facing significant challenges
We’re always keen to hear people’s ideas and welcome volunteers’ help and support.
