CASE STUDY: Open Kitchen Social Club

Open Kitchen Social Club promo from artist filmmaker Ian Nesbitt on Vimeo.

Established in May 2014, the Open Kitchen Social Club meets every Monday in Sheffield for a weekly community event which provides food, support, and a place to meet for destitute asylum seekers, refugees, those in food and social poverty in the wider community. Over the years has seen a huge increase in the numbers of British people attending every week. At the time of this film, OKSC was feeding 35-40 people per week.

Food is provided free of charge to ensure that it is accessible to those in the most need and that everyone remains on equal terms. Participants are encouraged to get involved with cooking, cleaning and hosting the events and providing peer support to one another. As well as the weekly cafe OKSC hold occasional events and trips for members and opportunities to cook at commercial events.

Open Kitchen Social Club is an independant, constituted community group.
