Healthy Hackney recipe kits are go!

A Hackney social enterprise that produces affordable healthy recipe kits for local residents is launching this week.

The recipe kits, produced by Haggerston-based Make Kit, contain everything needed to make a nutritious meal at home, including pre-measured ingredients and an easy-to-follow recipe. 

Last year, the recipe kits were trialled over three months on the Fellows Court Estate.

Seimone, a local resident who uses the kits, said: “It’s saved me a lot of time with the kids, all the ingredients are there for you instead of you going to the shops."

A family Make Kit starts at £2.64 per person and can be ordered online for two or four people. They can be delivered at home or collected from a local pick-up point.

Make Kit was founded by chef Steve Wilson and Justine Fish, a food businesswoman.

Justine said: "We are really excited to be re-launching across Hackney. Meal kits are a new way of cooking at home and can help you eat healthier and save time and money. However, most recipe kits are out-of-budget for the average UK household. We wanted to create a recipe kit that was affordable and bring these benefits to a more people."

Make Kit is being supported by Hackney Council’s Healthier Hackney Fund, which provides funding and support to groups looking to make Hackney healthier.
