The deadline to get involved in the next round is the 13th Jan - see the 'About' tab for more info!
We would like to work with a number of schools in the Hammersmith & City area and provide them with cookery classes for children to learn about healthy eating and to introduce them to a range of different recipes. As we already run after school clubs where parents pay for their child to attend, we would like to run a separate weekly cookery class for children from a low income background and who typically fall under the 'free school meals' category. These classes would run once a week for an hour in a designated room where the children will only be preparing the dishes, and will therefore not be needing to use any ovens or cookers but only a table space with access to a sink. We would love to work with 5 schools in the local area who suffer from low funding and our project would last for a whole school calendar year with different children attending on a termly basis, that way every child is given an opportunity to take part in our classes.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
THEY NEED YOUR HELP! Imagine a world where children were fed tasty and nutritious, real food at school from the age of 4 to 18. A world where every child was educated about how amazing food is, where it comes from, how it affects the body and how it can save their lives” - Jamie Oliver The reality is this, today we live in a massive pre-packaged, processed world made up of monopoly fast food giants who will stop at nothing until every man, woman and child is a living, breathing specimen of their cancerous collection. The situation has escalated to a point where they are now calling it an epidemic. To put this into perspective, the WHO (World Health Organization) highlight this dramatic rise in obesity which went from 4% in 1975 to 16% in 2016 where both boys and girls share an equal proportion. We have taken the first steps to eradicate child obesity by starting a cookery programme designed to not only teach children how to eat healthy, but most importantly to have fun with it.
