A charity initiative that helps anyone who has survived or is still going through cancer learn recipes designed to help mitigate changes in taste that result from treatment. It raises a significant amount of its funding from crowdfunding: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/LifeKitchen

What we love about it:

Food can sometimes isolate rather than bring together – we may be unable to eat socially for many reasons (dietary habits, financial access, health concerns). But here this is turned upside down, bringing people who share their experience of food together.
