Discover our exciting cooking classes designed for young people aged 9–18. At Earth Living, we are an established social enterprise that has successfully run cooking classes with Brent and Ealing youths since 2021.
We aim to extend our services to other organizations and boroughs throughout London, offering cultural cooking sessions after school and holidays. We also welcome parents and community members who would like to attend and actively participate.
Our objective is to help young people develop essential cooking skills that will benefit them and provide valuable life skills. Earth Living's cooking classes equip them with the tools to cook their meals independently.
For instance, young people attending university can acquire the necessary skills to cook independently, empowering them to take the next step and develop a sense of responsibility.
The benefits of our cooking classes are numerous. We teach young people about food waste and food allergies, positively impacting and influencing juveniles and ex-offenders, keeping them off the streets. We also focus on teaching health and safety skills, nutrition, and increasing cultural awareness. Earth Living's meals not only improve diet quality and self-confidence but also prevent the intake of fast foods that may lead to obesity, thereby enhancing overall health and mental well-being.
When it comes to logistics, all cooking takes place on your premises, and you are responsible for providing the ingredients, utensils, and cooking appliances. Earth Living can supply these items subject to prior arrangements at an additional cost if needed.
Our rates are as follows: £50 per hour per class and £30 per hour per class for the assistance team. The assistance team supports in cooking the meals and tidying up, and Earth Living can provide between 1-3 assistants depending on the class size. For age groups 9-12, we accommodate a maximum of 10 children per class, while for age groups 13-18 and over, we can accommodate up to 15 participants per class. We require a minimum of 5 people per class to proceed.
Join us at Earth Living Cooking Classes and embark on a flavourful journey where young people gain valuable life skills, explore culinary creativity, and create a positive impact on their health and well-being.
