Have you heard of Kitchen Social?

Kitchen Social is a London programme convened by the Mayor’s Fund for London. The Challenge - 500,000 London children struggle for food during the school holidays. For children from disadvantaged backgrounds, the school holidays can be a difficult time. With no free school meals or teacher support, hunger and social isolation are a reality for many young Londoners.

How does Kitchen Social help?

Kitchen Social works with mainly open access, local community based organisations, to create an environment where children, young people and their families and carers can feel comfortable to play, explore new ideas, make new friends, learn and get a good balanced meal during the holidays.  

What do we expect from a hub in brief ?  To be open access and be willing to provide 20 days of food provision throughout the year

How do we help Hubs in brief? To help hubs reach the right level of readiness and quality we will provide a support package which includes Holiday Provision Handbook and Training, cook book,  a grant of £1200 per year for three years 

If you believe this programme would be of interest to your or your partners / members  I would love the opportunity to meet to discuss it in more detail.  I have also attached a full description of the service description and the registration form

Kitchen Social have 5 places available for their November 28 training (deadline for registration will be closing next week soon) but they are also recruiting a maximum of 20 hubs for their January training which will be on a first come first served basis.
