Scarborough Community Kitchen is a community organisation set up to provide food for vulnerable people during the Coronavirus pandemic. We provide food parcels and chilled meals to vulnerable individuals, for example those in isolation or people with disabilities or mobility issues, in addition to supporting Scarborough Hospital, Overdale School, the Rainbow Centre and the Salvation Army. All of our individual referrals come from Age UK as part of the Scarborough Covid Relief hub. Scarborough Community Kitchen relies on donations from members of the public, in addition to the support of multiple businesses and residents of Scarborough, you can see them on our partners page. It is run by a small group of local people.
