Good Food Matters
Registered Charity Number: 1111235
Good Food Matters is a Croydon charity dedicated to supporting people of all ages and backgrounds in the community to build healthier lifestyles.
In 2006 we set up a teaching kitchen in Croydon to help disadvantaged young people learn how to cook good food for themselves. Now in 2014 we have raised over 750,000 to build The Good Food Matters Community Food Learning Centre in New Addington. This 1.5 acre site incorporates a beautiful eco built teaching kitchen and a huge growing area with full access for wheelchair users.
What we do
At the Community Food Learning Centre we run acredited and non-acredited cookery and horticulture courses for specific sections of the community. We also run schools and curriculum based programmes, short-term to long-term apprenticeship programmes, volunteers programmes, community wide gardening projects, training in sustainable gardening inc. beekeeping and recycling. All volunteers receive free training and free produce when available and surplus produce will go to those in need.
With your help we can start running the programmes this summer 2014
We are constantly fundraising to keep this amazing project going so please contact us to see how you can get involved or do your own fundraising for us through Charity Choice. Visit blog.goodfoodmatters.org.uk to see our progress to date.
