Launch of Greener Kirkcaldy’s new Community Building
The new building at 8 East Fergus Place, houses two new community kitchens - The Lang Spoon Community Training Kitchen and The Lang Spoon Production Kitchen - an events space, a kitchen garden, a new distribution point for Kirkcaldy Foodbank, and a new community fridge redistributing surplus food that would otherwise go to waste.
The Community Building will also be a base for a range of Greener Kirkcaldy’s other activities, including its Cosy Kingdom energy advice team; repair and re-use workshop; a free bike borrowing scheme, which includes six new electric bikes; as well as offering a range of new volunteer opportunities.
The Lang Spoon Community Training Kitchen will be a place for people to come together to grow, cook, eat and learn, through a range of classes focused on cooking on a budget, plant-based cooking and cooking for beginners.
Suzy Goodsir, Chief Executive of Greener Kirkcaldy, said:
“We are really excited and proud to show off our new building and The Lang Spoon Community Kitchen - which is a place for everyone in our community to grow, cook, eat and learn. It’s fantastic after a lot of hard work to be welcoming everyone in our own front door.”
