The founders of Made in Hackney are hoping to raise a massive £85,000 through a crowd funding campaign to fund healthy eating courses for 10,000 people in need.

Care leavers, low income families and people looking to get back into the kitchen after a stroke or going blind will all be helped over the next five years if the social enterprise in Cazenove Road, Stoke Newington, reaches its target.

They hope to raise the money to become less reliant on grants and donations in future. The group currently runs free and pay-by-donation cookery and food growing classes with themes like Feed 4 for £3 and fifteen minute meals.

A Christmas recipe e-booklet and entry into a prize draw to win a Rude Health hamper can be secured with a £10 donation. For £1200 cookery book author Rachel De Thample will cook a supper club for 10 at home.
