Duchess Meghan visits Hubb Community Kitchen 2 months after co-authoring a charity cookbook with survivors

adminNovember 21, 2018




Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, will visit Hubb Community Kitchen in West London to meet with a group of women survivors of the deadly fire at Grenfell Tower, two months after being associated in a charity cookbook.

The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex collaborated with women in a cookbook, "Together: Our Community Cookbook," to help raise funds to keep Hubb's community kitchen open up to seven days a week and to expand your reach in the community. After the fire, the community met in the kitchen of the Muslim Cultural Heritage Center Al Manaar to prepare food for their families (Hubb means love in Arabic).

Profits from cookbook sales were used to renovate the community's kitchen, so that women could prepare food for their families and neighbors, who were affected by the tragic fire that killed 72 people.

Now, women can prepare 200 meals in a single day, according to the Kensington Palace, to be delivered to local groups in the community.

The Duchess will meet women as they prepare fresh meals for the local community in the newly renovated kitchen.

Meghan personally wrote the front of the cookbook, which quickly became a best seller when it was launched in September. She described the project as a work of love and something that united women after the fire last year.

"Together it's more than a cookbook," he wrote. "This is a story of friendship and a story of union, it is a tribute to the power of cooking as a community and the recipes that allow us to connect, share and look forward."

The Duchess of Sussex visited the kitchen for the first time in January 2018 and has continued to make periodic private visits to the kitchen.

"Immediately I felt connected to this community kitchen, it's a place where women laugh, cry, cry and cook together," Meghan wrote in the prologue.

"By fusing cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normality, in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nourish and commune through food, through crisis or joy , something we can all relate to, "she wrote. "Through this charitable effort, the revenues will allow the kitchen to prosper and keep alive the global spirit of community."
