School clubs

Big-lottery-programme: Our flagship programme of school-based healthy cooking clubs for families.

In 2007, the Children's Food Trust, (under its former name the School Food Trust), was awarded a £20 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund to set up the first 5,000 school-based Let's Get Cooking clubs for children, parents and the wider community. Find out more about the impact the programme has had.

HI BIG_E_MIN_PINKOver the five-year programme we consistently exceeded the objectives agreed with the Big Lottery Fund. As a result, our Let’s Get Cooking schools programme has been chosen as one of the good causes to receive extra support from the Big Lottery Fund and has been awarded an extra year’s worth of funding.

This extra funding will allow Let’s Get Cooking to continue developing and supporting healthy cooking skills for children, young people and families through our school-based clubs. It will also support the launch of a new pilot scheme to learn more about cooking with young people in care. And some will be used by our partners at the Prince’s Trust to continue healthy cooking projects with teenagers.

Our partners

We partnered with the Prince’s Trust, Business in the Community, Magic Outcomes, British Nutrition Foundation and the Royal Society for Public Health to deliver the five-year Lottery-funded programme.

All funded places have now been allocated, however schools and other organisations can still register to become non-funded clubs, join our growing Let’s Get Cooking network and access resources.
