The Good Food Co-op is an initiative led by Voices of Hope and KingsGate Church.

Like many communities, Kingston Upon Thames has been on a significant journey experiencing both the extensive, negative impact of Covid-19, but also the incredible community response to help those in need.

In March, as services began to close and lock down, many people faced extreme difficulty providing their own food. A partnership quickly developed between Kingston Council, Voices of Hope, Kingston Churches Together, Kingston Voluntary Action and other local charities and businesses. With the support of a triage and referral system by Kingston Council, volunteers from all areas of the community provided food, baby supplies, temporary accommodation and a listening ear.

As our response increasingly co-ordinated across the Borough, the need became apparent to not only provide emergency crisis relief through Foodbanks, but also to develop a sustainable and fully accessible food co-op, where income was not a barrier to healthy, fresh food.

This is where the idea of The Good Food Co-op was born!
