Kitchen Social - a new programme being rolled out By the Mayor’s Fund for London, which we hope you will find of interest. The main aims of the programme is to tackle issues of children going hungry, being isolated and falling behind in their education during the holiday periods.
Kitchen Social works with local grass root community organisations to create an environment where children, young people, their families and carers can feel comfortable to play, explore new ideas, make new friends, learn and get a good balanced free meal during the holidays.
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
We have 5 places available for our November 28th Training but deadline for registration will be closing next week soon but we are also recruiting a maximum of 20 hubs for our January training which will be on a first come first served basis. Sadly we do not envisage any more training for a while until new funding is secured, so please do register with us if interested.
I look forward to hearing from you.
