Stoves relaunches Community Kitchens Competition
A competition, by British cooking brand Stoves, offering community kitchen projects, charities and organisations the chance to win kitchen appliances to support their work, has reopened for entries.
The £10,000 Stoves Community Kitchens campaign, which aims to transform kitchen facilities on community projects across the UK, has been running for three years. In that time, it has helped a wide range of organisations including youth clubs, schools for children with additional learning needs, community projects that support the homeless, a pensioners' dinner club and organisations that help to educate people of all ages about cooking, food and nutrition.
The competition asks people to nominate their charity or organisation and explain why it has a positive impact on the local community.
In the previous phase of the competition in late 2017, the first prize of £5,000 of Stoves cooking appliances went to Joel Community Project, which provides food, friendship and shelter to people experiencing homelessness, in Kingston-upon-Thames.
Other projects that received appliance packages included the Prescot Pensioner's Dinner Club, which is a volunteer-led community group that feeds up to 40 older people once a week, and Easington Youth Club, which provides a safe place for children to meet, play, interact and learn new skills such as baking and cooking.
The competition has now re-opened for entries, with a brand new website - which also features case studies on previous winners.
Nominations are open until Thursday March 29th, with a shortlist to be announced in mid-April which will then be put to a public vote. The projects which receive the most votes will then be awarded bronze, silver and gold prize packages of appliances, worth between £2,000 and £5,000.
