Duchess of Cornwall Opens Community Kitchen Near Westfield

Nourish Hub serves food daily on a 'pay as you feel' basis

Camilla chats to staff at the official opening

The Duchess of Cornwall visited the Edward Woods Estate near Westfield to officially open a new community kitchen, Nourish Hub.

The hub is run by the charity UKHarvest and offers a place for residents to come together and eat heathy, affordable food. Nutritious meals are served daily on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis, and the Hub also offers food-based learning and training opportunities to local people.

Camilla was welcomed by Hammersmith and Fulham Council Leader Cllr Stephen Cowan before receiving a tour of the Hub’s facilities and meeting with local residents and representatives from UKHarvest and Goodman, the charity’s founding partner.

Her Royal Highness said. "I'd like to congratulate everyone who is part of this, I think you've done a brilliant job. The minute you walk in here you get a lovely uplifting, cheerful feeling. What you're doing is bringing people together and getting people talking over food. You can’t think of many better combinations - so many congratulations to you all."

Cllr Cowan said, “I'm delighted to welcome Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall to Hammersmith & Fulham - and particularly to the wonderful Nourish Hub.

“I’m grateful to all the people who work, volunteer, or simply enjoy the Nourish Hub and the Nourish project, and I am extremely grateful to Her Royal Highness for helping to spotlight and celebrate this fantastic venture.”
