The Good Kitchen is an initiative of the KellyDeli Foundation. Launched in 2016, the KellyDeli Foundation is an independent UK charity (registration number 1168207) whose aim is to tackle food poverty through supporting entrepreneurial ideas
We believe that to tackle food poverty we need to build a better food system. The current food system is not fit for purpose and creates many problems:
The KellyDeli Foundation was founded by food entrepreneurs Jerome Castaing and Kelly Choi. Having built a successful food company, KellyDeli, and brand, Sushi Daily, Jerome and Kelly wanted to use their skills and resources to make a difference in the lives of others.
The Good Kitchen grew out of hundreds of conversations with charities, social enterprises, policy makers and businesses who were all passionate about tackling food poverty and food insecurity. Their ideas and inputs have been invaluable in shaping the programme. A few of our key partners in recruiting for and delivering The Good Kitchen are listed below.
