Somerset Health and Wellbeing in Learning Programme is working with Somerset Community Food to develop an exciting new programme of Cooking Club Training that will run from October 2012 until March 2013.
The training sessions will be delivered in convenient locations across the county and offer schools the chance to establish or re-design dynamic school-based cooking clubs. In addition to the training, schools will be given advice and support to develop a sustainable club, look at ways in which the club could support all aspects of school life and each school that takes part will be given resources of £100 to support their club.
Anyone from within a school’s community could get involved in a cooking club and we welcome interest from governors, teachers, teaching assistants, young people, parents and family members.
If you would like to start a school-based cooking club or reinvigorate an existing one with some fresh ideas, please get in touch with Fiona Moir at
Schools who develop a cooking club could achieve a Director of Public Health Award for planning and developing a health-based school project
Somerset Community Food is a grass-roots charity which aims to re-connect people with the social, health and environmental benefits of growing, buying, preparing and eating local food. As well as carrying out funded projects, it provides training & consultancy services, runs and promotes public events and connects people in Somerset who are interested in land and food issues.
