Since we launched Gourmet Kids in Summer 2020 the popularity of the project has quadrupled thanks to the enthusiasm of our young people.
This half term we ran 4 Gourmet Kids sessions across all age groups. Our seniors loved it so much they had three sessions just for their group.
Gourmet Kids runs during the school holidays. Food boxes and equipment are provided free to the recipients and we have a dedicated Facebook group where we share ideas and share photographs of the dishes our wannabe Mary Berry’s and Jamie Oliver’s have made at home.
Alongside Gourmet Kids, we have also launched a monthly Saturday Kitchen where everyone comes together via Zoom and our staff lead the cooking with fun interactive sessions. Again, food packs are provided free of charge to the recipients.
The feedback has been so positive that we will continue to source external funding to run Gourmet Kids.
