The Children’s Food Trust, (previously named the School Food Trust), was awarded Big Lottery funding in 2007 to set up and support the first 5,000 Let’s Get Cooking school-based cooking clubs for children and their families. Let's Get Cooking is now the largest national network of healthy cooking clubs in the country.
As well as our school-based clubs, we provide training and support for other organisations running cooking activities for children, young people and adults. We work in various settings including primary, secondary and special schools, pupil referral units, children’s centres and charities.
We deliver cooking programmes, training and resources for partners, such as Cook4Life, London 2012, the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, the Good Practice Network, Sheffield Change4Life, Tewkesbury Healthy Towns and primary care trusts across the country.
So far, more than 2 million people have benefited from Let’s Get Cooking – by attending club sessions, taking part in community cooking events, or benefiting from skills passed on at home.
