Kids cook up tasty eats


Local kids have been finessing their culinary skills recently thanks to a programme by Kitchen Social's, 'Take & Make' recipe kits.

The impressive menu included:

  • Spicy bean burgers
  • Sweet potato and chickpea curry
  • Chocolate and pear cake

200 children picked up their food kits from Poplar HARCA community centres.

The programme teaches them to cook by providing nutritious meals for local families. Learning to cook is the gateway to eating well and offers many physical and mental benefits.  It also addresses the serious and growing issue of food insecurity and social isolation outside of term time.

“[It’s] such a treat, the kids are going to have a lot of fun making these with me at home”. Mrs. Chowdry, local parent.
