Let’s Get Cooking hits the 3 million mark
We’ve inspired a new generation of children, and their families, with the skills and knowledge to make healthier food choices for life.
This amazing achievement has only been possible thanks to the dedication and passion for cooking of more than 11,000 Let’s Get Cooking champions, working in 5700 clubs across the country. With generous support from the Big Lottery Fund we’re proud to have created and grown a network, supported through expert advice, training and resources, which has changed attitudes and eating habits for the better throughout England.
Rob Rees, Chair of the Children’s Food Trust, says: “I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us to reach this milestone. Together we’ve achieved something incredible. From the seed of an idea we’ve built a network of committed club champions on a mission to inspire and encourage, changing attitudes to cooking and healthy food and sharing core life skills children can use now and in the future.
“We believe if children eat better they will do better. Children who understand the value of healthy, tasty food and have the skills to cook will benefit in terms of their health, well-being and education. The long-term impact of Let’s Get Cooking will be truly life-changing.”
