History

Be Enriched was formally in September 2013 by a group of youth workers, arts professionals and young people to provide young people the opportunity to develop skills and improve community cohesion through training and volunteering opportunities.


The  Canteens Project was started as a short-term project in 2013 to provide young offenders with an alternative community service opportunity. After a month we could clearly see that there was an ongoing need for food and friendship in the community. We had 40 regulars and were utilising a huge amount of surplus food each week.

So we kept the project going.

Now it's been expanded to four canteens in South London serving over 3,880 meals with over 650 volunteers per year alongside other projects and food system improvement work.

We're proud to be partnering with the Staunch Book Prize

 

Together with Brixton People's Kitchen we are asking people to donate to the Staunch Book Prize.

The competition celebrates wonderful thrillers that weave intriguing stories, without any form of violence to women. This unique international literary competition is running again this year and is open to authors or writers whose stories do not contain graphic and gratuitous violence against women. 

The Staunch Book Prize is entirely run voluntarily and all money raised will cover the administration of the prize.
