Cooking @ The Storehouse – one year in (nearly!)

It’s coming up to a year since we started our Cooking @ The Storehouse hub, bringing the former Jamie’s Ministry of Food centre under our roof to deliver cooking classes and food education alongside our food distribution work.

In the first year, Soraya and her team have delivered 115 cooking sessions in schools, youth clubs, community groups and adult health services, as well as running 25 kids’ holiday cooking sessions and a handful of food safety courses. That’s over 1,000 people who have had the opportunity to learn more about cooking simple, healthy meals whatever their budget, skills or experience – and gone home with a delicious meal to eat.

We’re taking a bit of a break now, as Soraya’s off for a while, but we’re booking community and school workshops from June onwards, and we’ll have our fantastic kids’ cooking classes running over the summer holidays – look out for details here or follow Cooking @ The Storehouse (@iccooking) on Facebook or Twitter.
