Shoreditch Trust believes that coming together to cook and share good food can be transformative. Community Table connects people to the good quality food essential for health and wellbeing.
Community Table operates from the kitchen of The Waterhouse Restaurant, a social enterprise run by Shoreditch Trust.
The Waterhouse Restaurant sits on the Regents Canal and serves local flavour to customers from 9am-3pm every weekday. Waterhouse can also be hired for events, which our team can cater. All income supports our programmes.

Community Kitchens - facilitated cook and eat groups for Families and Adults
Group cook and eat sessions, bringing people together to prepare and eat a meal together, taking part in discussions and activities on nutrition and cooking topics and building social connections, confidence, peer support and sharing of community knowledge.

As the cost of food and fuel for cooking, heating, and washing continue to increase, people in our community will struggle to meet basic needs for themselves and their families.
Community Table, based at our social enterprise restaurant, the Waterhouse, hosts Hackney and City residents for weekly meals and coffee mornings where they can receive support and advice from peers and professionals.
All donations allow us to continue providing meals and comfort and can make a huge difference to individuals using our services. If you feel able to support people in our community, please consider buying a meal or a hot drink using our donations page.
