Kids’ Kitchen

Community Interest Company

Company No. 06960384

Kids’ Kitchen offers a hands-on cooking experience for all children from all backgrounds.  They will learn the importance of healthy eating, food provenance, food miles, recycling food packaging, food hygiene and basic cookery skills in a light hearted and entertaining environment.

Our aim is to provide workshops which will stimulate childrens imaginations, the local food producing economy and supporting farmers.  We hope to give children the basic skills needed and access to a dedicated website where recipes can be found, troubleshooting problems and frequently asked questions about foods.

Over the period of pilot schemes, we have worked with and have support from the following organisations:

  • Yorkshire Agricultural Society - Schools Countryside Days & Countryside Live!
  • North Yorkshire Business Enterprise Partnership - STEM Fairs
  • Stockbridge College of Science & Technology Re: Open Farm Sunday
  • Northern Dales Farmers Markets
  • Farming & Countryside Education
  • LEAF Linking Environment & Farming
  • North Yorkshire County Council
  • Several other Agricultural Societies and family events organisers

We would welcome working with any other groups or organisations to deliver these services either by way of sponsorship or in kind contributions. We are currently seeking funding to undertake these events without charge following a frustrating 2 years spent applying to National Lottery Local Food Project which was eventually turned down, despite being well supported and highly recommended by their own Assessor.

Funding would also enable us to pay for other benefits such as better equipment, a new marquee cover, website, promotional materials, recipe cards and folders, as well as paying our staff a reasonable wage.
