The revenue generated by our Cookery School helps support our range of community projects.
We teach how to cook affordable, healthy and tasty food from scratch within communities experiencing food poverty.
Cracking Good Food launched in March 2010. We believe cooking is a vital life skill that everyone should have the opportunity to learn.
