Family Cooking Sessions supported by The Oakland Foundation donation

This Summer we're aiming to #GetCoalvilleCooking

In addition to our already successful HAF (Holiday Activities and Food) sessions running at the Marlene Reid centre in Coalville this summer, we have been striving to create different and inclusive ways children and families can get together and recieve both education and nutrition in their local communities. We are massively grateful to the Oakland Foundation for their kind donation which has supported our new Family Cook Off sessions allowing us to purchase a number of portable kitchens including a plug in stove, and basic kitchen essentials to get started.

The Foundation’s target group is children under the age of 16 and their families who live in England and Wales, focusing on the following themes:

Education: to ensure children get the best education, no matter what their background.
Health and nutrition: to ensure children have access to healthy food
Sport: to ensure children have access to sport and activities irrespective of social background or physical ability

Our Family Cook off programme sees parents and children from our HAF program join together and get involved in some collaborative cooking with our fabulous volunteer cooks.

Each Thursday through our summer HAF program we create both meat and plant based versions of the same recipes providing attendees with all the equiptment and resources needed to make the dishes whilst giving our guests cost saving tips and helping them to try out new recipe ideas with their families.

Here’s what a few of the families have had to say about the Family Cook Off….

“I had no idea I could cook like that. Its really opened my eyes and I can’t wait to try this out myself at home”

“I will definitely be making this. Its soo good!!”

“It was really nice to be able to share some of my experience with the older kids. You could see from the look on their faces how much they got out of the session”

We are now in the process of planning more community cooking events to allow everyone to get involved and will announce them shortly.

Once again massive thanks to the Oakland Foundation for supporting our mission to #GetCoalvilleCooking !
