Thanks to my successful bid to the AHRC’s Gateways to the First World War research fund the social eating schemes of 100 years ago – national kitchens – are reborn!
Long forgotten, these communal dining projects were vital to the British war effort in the conflict’s latter stages.
I’m recreating them not in a spirit of jingoism, but one of critical reflection on approaches to food poverty today.
I will be recreating these events across Britain so if you are a community group / charity and are interested, please contact me.
A selection of images from the first event are available here:
