The Duchess of Sussex is giving her support to a community kitchen, set up in the aftermath of London’s deadly Grenfell Tower fire.
Meghan Markle has written a foreword to a volume of recipes from the Hubb Community Kitchen. It was set up by women displaced when fire destroyed the west London highrise in June 2017, killing 72 people.
The recipes from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and beyond reflect the diversity of the local community.
Prince Harry’s wife wrote that the community kitchen “is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together” and “creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy.”
A statement from Kensington Palace says the proceeds from Together; Our Community Cookbook will go toward keeping the kitchen open and helping it expand.
