Situation

Too many children are not learning how to prepare and cook, a vital life skill that is lacking among the younger generation. Low income families are struggling to provide healthy, wholesome meals, therefore rely on cheap alternatives, high in fat, sugar and salt, resulting in health related diseases. Our project aims to educate these children about the importance of a healthy diet and give them the opportunity to cook low-cost, healthy meals, an opportunity they wouldn't otherwise get.

Solution

Many children are often left hungry and lack the nutrition they need to stay fit and healthy. Our mobile pop-up kitchen allows us to target areas of poverty and teach disadvantaged young children how to cook, ensuring these individuals don't go hungry. Our cookery workshops are fun, creative, socially interacting, and hands-on, whilst also being educational in food and basic nutrition.
