Made In Hackney is a pioneering educational eco-community kitchen. Nestled underneath not-for-profit health food shop Food For All, we teach vital cooking, composting and food growing skills that are good for people and planet. In our classes we draw people's attention to the much overlooked reality of, 'without a healthy planet, how can we be healthy people?' We therefore teach people in fun and inspiring ways healthy eating and lifestyle skills alongside environmental best practice.
Our courses are attended by local charities, housing associations, support groups and community groups most in need of developing food skills. On Sunday’s we run pay-by-donation Community Classes open to anyone, and led by local volunteers. We also run an enterprise arm of the charity which delivers Masterclasses on a ticket only basis for members of the public, as well as corporate and catering events. Over 750 participants over the last year have attended classes and reported back positive changes.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a Fundraising Sub Group of the Steering Committee.

The ideal candidate will have experience working in a cross section of the corporate, social enterprise and charity sectors, as well as education and/or community health.
A detailed understanding of, and passion for the health and environmental issues underpinning Made In Hackneys food policy (local, seasonal, organic, planet based) and mission statement is essential.
