The largest employer in one of the most deprived areas of Calderdale, United Kingdom, is a voluntary organisation that has created a green kitchen building in a community garden on a piece of wasteland. The building is a straw bale structure, and the garden grows food.

From this facility, they teach cooking, and it has also acted as a hub for emergency food provision throughout the pandemic. Most significantly, the activity has helped build skills and capacity and leveraged funding to create employment opportunities in the area.
