Our projects

KCS runs a number of cookery projects, including:

  • Introduction to cookery and healthy eating: a one-off workshop for students of any age where they make two simple dishes and learn about balanced diets.
  • Cookery workshops for children with complex special needs: KCS is fully wheelchair friendly and all equipment is suitable for wheelchair users.
  • Private group bookings
  • Open sessions during school holidays: classes open to any children aged 3-16 years old. An assisted places scheme allows children whose parents are on income support to attend at a subsidised rate.
  • Practical cookery for children and parents in children's centres.
  • Outreach work in schools and community centres: healthy eating workshops or practical cookery activities at your school or community centre.
  • Why not celebrate your birthday here at KCS? We take groups of a minimum of 10 children and a maximum of 12, and ensure that your birthday party will be a creative success!
  • KCS are unique in that they tailor-make all of their sessions to meet the needs and requirements of your school, community group or childrens centre.
  • KCS on Wheels delivers cookery workshops to schools, community groups and special needs groups anywhere in Greater London.

Welcome to The Kids' Cookery School.

The Kids' Cookery School's mission is to give every child in the UK a unique and fun cooking experience in order to help them make informed choices about food and an understanding around health and diet.

Started in 2000, the charity has worked with over 150,000 children, young people and families across London, many of whom may have severe physical and learning disabilities, behavioural problems or been excluded from mainstream education.

Many schools cannot offer practical cookery - KCS teaches students from local high schools.
