    Story

    The rising cost of living, loneliness and isolation are all making life increasingly challenging for many people in our community. To offer support, In The Mix was born and for over a year, local Asylum Seekers have been cooking and serving fantastic meals every Wednesday at the Granville Community Kitchen. What started as a community meal has now turned into a social, supportive and collaborative weekly event where friendships are formed, skills shared and support offered (as well as the delicious food!).

    It costs us only £2 per head to create and serve a two course meal. Our weekly numbers are rising sharply, doubling from an average of 40 to 80 guests, which further highlights the need for projects such as this in our community. However, the sad reality is that in June we will run out of funds and we need you to help keep this important initiative alive.

    In The Mix was created by local resident Matilda Velevitch who runs Useful Productions, a Community Interest Project and is North London Lead for Care4Calais. Matilda says;

    “The Asylum Seekers I work with have much to offer and are so keen to give back to the community by volunteering. In The Mix has provided a possibility not only for them to do that but also for people, whatever their story, to come together around a table each week as a neighbourhood. It's not just about the food, it's about mental health, building confidence, encouraging others, and reminding ourselves we are a community.”

    In The Mix The Kensal Rise Tri team is made up of The El Salvadorian PEREZ family (Mum, Dad and two kids) fleeing gang violence and extortion, as well as Terekegn, Ahmat and Hussein, young men fleeing war, slavery and trafficking in Sudan, Chad and Eritrea. They are an inspiration, please support them.

    we have also been joined by Kieumy from 9Kitchens, a huge supporter of refugee women, and Cllr Anton Georgiou. Huge thanks to both of them ❤️
