Our Charity for the year 2022

At each AGM Kent Humanists choose a charity to support for the year. This year's charity is The Kitchen CT9, part of the charitable company, Thanet Iceberg Project. The Kitchen provides home cooked meals largely prepared from surplus food either for free or an affordable donation. It offers a community space, a warm place to spend the day, mental health support and creative activity. It also runs a community fridge scheme.

"You drop off good but unwanted food

We check it is safe to eat and packaging is undamaged

We relabel it with clear guidance on its use by date

We store it in the Fridge or Freezer as appropriate

Anyone can help themselves to what is on the shelf."

There will be an opportunity to donate cash at our regular monthly meetings.
