Ah, good old Hackney. You can always count on this tight-knit community to come together in times of crisis – for instance, the mass clean up they coordinated following the 2011 riots.

Now that social-distancing measures have been advised by the government to curtail the spread of Covid-19, charity kitchen Made in Hackney is crowdfunding to help feed the elderly and vulnerable whilst isolated and unable to visit supermarkets.

They’re aiming to raise £30,000 so they can use their 5* hygiene-rated kitchen to cook nourishing food and deliver it straight to the door of those in need via non-contact couriers. The more money they make now, the more meals they’ll be able to distribute. 

So dig deep, London! We’re all in this together. 

That's the community covered, but what about local restaurants? Find out how they’re offering voucher deals to keep their businesses afloat.
