CooksForce (Contracted by London Borough of Southwark - 2018 - 2019)

Brixton People’s Kitchen delivered CooksForce, a 3-week cooking course funded by Southwark Council’s Public Health Department. The project was delivered in five different areas of the borough between 15th March 2018 and 10th April 2019 to a total of 73 participants. The course was open to both adults and children (over the age of 5). The aim was to feature and introduce a wide variety of healthy, nutritious and affordable
food. In addition to promote health and safety in the kitchen and increase participants general
confidence and cookery skills.
For this work we won a Sustain award for Women in food.

Community CooksForce (Funded by the Evening Standard's Food for London Fund - 2017)

Be Enriched’s new project in 2017, CooksForce, officially launched!
CooksForce is a community cooking project designed to inspire good practices in the kitchen with a fresh food approach. The goal was to develop the basic cooking skills of people to enable them to make fresh, delicious, wholesome meals from scratch, at home and on a budget. The course aimed to get people thinking creatively about saving food from being wasted and used surplus food from local retailers in the practical sessions.
We worked with 8 community groups who worked with people affected by ill mental health, disablity, carers, older people and young people over the first 10 months.
