Wandsworth’s StreetCube declared ‘official emergency food solution’

Sustainable-minded street food project StreetCube has declared itself an ‘official emergency food solution’ for people in the Wandsworth area.

The business says it will work with Wandsworth Council, food banks and the delivery service Uber Eats to provide food for people in need.

Initiatives at the south west London venue will include a free delivery service for over 70s.

“The StreetCube kitchens are robust, hygienic, safe and secure," says co-founder Pascal Gerrard. “We have two semi-permanent solar-powered Street kitchens in place at SouthSide piazza in Wandsworth, on Wandsworth High Street, with a third being built to cope with the demand”.

StretCube believes it is especially well-placed to deal with the crisis because it has no inside seating and food is collected from hatches.

It is hoping to expand its operations in the wake of the Coronavirus crisis, which has already seen a number of other hospitality business switch to takeaway and delivery-only.  

StreetCube was launched last year ​by Gerrard and Oliver Blanc (son of Raymond Blanc). Billed as a ‘revolutionary’ sustainability-focused street dining concept', the project was designed to provide chefs with affordable spaces in which they could cook the food they want. 

Produce must be sourced from a 100-miles radius and some of it must be organic. “StreetCube isn’t about Michelin-star cooking,” said Oliver Blanc at the time. “It’s just about good food that’s cooked with passion and made using quality ingredients.”
