COVID-19 update for the Community Kitchen

See what we get up to in our kitchen

Many activities have been affected by the spread of COVID-19, so we have created this page to provide the most up-to-date information on our policies and practices in the Community Kitchen.

After a thorough review of government guidance and best practices, we are pleased that we are able to start in person cookery activities again from September 2020. We are now offering:

We have put in place a range of new safety measures for these in person lessons including:

  • Significantly reduced class size (typically 6-7 people per class compared to the 12-15 people who used to attend. Bookings are made in groups of no more than 2 people per household. Events are in accordance with Covid-Secure venue guidelines from the Government)
  • Minimising and directing all movement around the kitchen and hallway
  • All participants, teachers and volunteers to wear a face covering throughout the class (as per government guidance, but with regular outdoor breaks provided as needed)
  • Improved ventilation in the kitchen
  • Additional cleaning and hygiene practices before, during and after each class, including regular hand washing and sanitiser available throughout the building
  • Food prepared during the class to be packaged and taken away rather than consumed on site

Alongside the return of cookery classes in the Kitchen, we are pleased to continue our successful programme of online cookery webinars, with new dates for autumn recently added.

Make sure you sign up to our email newsletters to be the first to know about future classes, whether online or in person. We are keeping our social media accounts (@btnkitchen) updated with cookery tips, recipes and instructional videos, alongside any class announcements.

These are difficult times for many organisations in the city, if you want to support our work, please consider buying a gift voucher.

We really appreciate your support. Please stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you into our space again soon.
