Description

KataKata Brixton restaurant in partnership with LionHeart In The Community (LITC) a local NGO in Brixton is launching a new initiative called ‘Healthy Living”.

Being a part of such a complex and diverse community we would like your help to maintain a healthy Brixton and also promote Healthy living internationally.

As a local restaurant, healthy eating has always been an important part of Katakata’s ethos. KataKata is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant they offer a variety of healthy fresh food and pressed juices.

We are encouraging young people to abandon the fast food culture in our community whilst educating them on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Last year the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, started an initiative that was based around fast food takeaways in the capital, encouraging them to make healthier food, the Mayor of London managed to sign up over 500 fast food takeaways and we are supporting that initiative. There are up to 40 fast food takeaways within half a mile of schools in some London boroughs. Just one portion of chips can contain 69g of fat, the total recommended amount of fat to be consumed in a day, according to the latest research. There are currently no laws to prevent new takeaway restaurants from opening, so the Mayor is trying to change the food that they sell.

Kataka is also supporting LITC's initiative in Africa, Cameroon - Wum. EASI – Entrepreneurship, Education, Sports and Information Technology training for young people in remote areas. The programme encourages young people, particularly young girls to be Educated on Healthy living lifestyles, Coding, Entrepreneurship and self-sustainability.

To find out more about our programmes please go to EASI and Katakata.

You can contribute to these efforts by visiting the restaurant, Donating, Volunteering, Spreading the word and Living Healthy!
