This winter, Pop Brixton and its members are teaming up with registered food redistribution charity Compliments of the House to provide free meals for vulnerable people in South London.
During the months of December, January and February, the creative space will be providing 150 meals to those in need.
The partnership comes as Pop Brixton reflects on a hugely successful year for charitable and community-focused events and projects, with achievements including 419 hours of community event space provided for free, 27 local community event partners and eight supported business spaces
Having previously worked together on charitable fundraising events, Pop Brixton is delighted to once again be collaborating with Compliments of the House, this time on a three-month partnership during the coldest months of the year.
Throughout December, January and February, the cultural space and its members Share a Slice, Other Side Fried and Stud Muffin will be providing complimentary meals for vulnerable people in their South London network.
Compliments of the House is a charity local to Brixton, working with businesses to redistribute food to people in need in the area on a no judgement basis.
Sinéad Browne, founder of the charity, ensures her managers are able to assess potential new guests without any need of proof of income, before working closely with guests and other services to inform those in need in their network about the service.
James Leay, of Make Shift, said of the partnership: “ The work that Compliments of the House do is so important to the local community, and we are so proud to be working with the charity once again, this time to provide hot meals for vulnerable people in South London during the coldest months of the year.
“We’re passionate about providing opportunities for people from the local community to come together and helping to create a valuable support network for those in need.”
