About

Solidarity Kitchen was founded by members of the Birmingham community and The Warehouse Cafe cooperative at the beginning of the Covid pandemic in March 2020. Over 20,000 free meals were cooked and delivered to people in need. This grassroots initiative organised volunteers, logistics, information campaigns and food thanks to an online fundraiser which reached over £17,000. With the end of the pandemic in sight and online donations substantially reduced, we decided to create a one day a week, pay as you feel cafe that offers a welcoming, accessible safe space for all. Our intention is to create a vibrant, nourishing environment that encourages wholesome relationships and support networks through the medium of food. We aim to grow and be a focal point in the community alongside the changing face of Digbeth, with the arrival of HS2 and further planned development. Volunteers will cook whole food vegan meals available for consumption in the cafe and delivered to those in need within the community. The space will encourage healthy eating through shared cooking skills, recipes and providing a nourishing environment of support and care. Workshops and Art activities will be available for creativity and confidence building with visions of creating a gallery within the cafe.

We decided to create an LGBTIQ+ pay as you feel cafe that offers a welcoming, accessible safe space for all, and particularly the most marginalised members of the LGBTIQ+ community, people who are refugees, Asylum seekers or experiencing homlessness. The idea came from being involved with the solidarity kitchen that was founded by members of the Birmingham community and The Warehouse Cafe cooperative at the beginning of the Covid pandemic in March 2020. We recognised then the need for a safe space for asylum seekers, refugees, people in precarious living situations who may also be part of the LGBTIQ+ community.  Over 20,000 free meals were cooked and delivered to people in need. This grassroots initiative organised volunteers, logistics, information campaigns and food thanks to an online fundraiser which reached over £17,000 and was meant to exist for the duration of the pandemic/ lockdown.

Our intention is to create a vibrant, nourishing environment that encourages wholesome relationships and support networks through the medium of food, skills sharing, art, performing arts, music and storytelling. We aim to grow and be a focal point in the community alongside the changing face of Digbeth, with the arrival of HS2 and further planned development
