Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Rumi's Kitchen was established in 2012 in response to the needs of the local community. The founder of Rumi's Cave, Sheikh Babikir was the Imam leading the Friday prayer at The Islamic Centre & Mosque Brent, based in Cricklewood. During that time, many people were knocking on the doors of places of worship for help with food and clothing.
Did you know that it is easier to get funding for a whole new kitchen but not for a few basic ingredients?!
We run all year round, regardless of the weather and we have no restrictions to who we can help. All those people who slip through the net because they are not young enough, old enough or "poor" enough for certain benefits are caught by us.
More importantly than the food, we provide company to those who are socially isolated, an issue that was prevalent way before the Covid imposed lockdown. It has also been a refuge for our volunteers themselves, and over the years we have developed our own kitchen family :)
We want to continue providing this safe space for years to come. If you are willing to help us in any way, please get in touch with us.
