The Kids’ Cookery School

In 2013 BRITA UK launched a long term partnership with The Kids’ Cookery School, a UK based charity that offers children the chance to learn about healthy cooking and eating. BRITA will support the charity and help it to reach more children in schools and communities and in doing so will also help educate them about the importance of quality food and drink.

BRITA supports Cookery Classes for Kids

The Kids’ Cookery School Charity runs fun and healthy cookery classes for children ages 3+.
The charity helps children learn about nutrition and food in a fun way, teaching them to cook and prepare delicious healthy food from scratch whilst educating them to make the right food choices from an early age.

Started in 2000, the charity has worked with over 40,000 children, young people and families across London, some of whom may have severe physical and learning disabilities, behavioural problems or been excluded from mainstream education.
This is done through their purpose-built teaching kitchens in Acton, West London and more recently through a mobile unit (KCS on wheels) which allows the charity to take the experience out to primary, secondary and special schools, community groups and children’s centres.

The KCS goal is to roll out KCS on wheels to every county right across the UK – they believe every child should have the opportunity to learn to cook. With a joint desire for health and well-being and BRITA filtered water playing an essential role within this. BRITA are proud to be supporting this amazing children’s charity!

In 2013 BRITA helped support KCS with their goal of reaching children outside of London and took KCS on wheels to children in Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire and Brighton & Hove.

Both employees and volunteers from KCS and BRITA attended five Primary Schools, a Special Needs Education School, as well as five Food Festivals holding fun, interactive cooking classes with children of all ages. In each class children learn about different food types, the ingredients they are using and where they come from, as well as making something independently they can eat from scratch.
