Aldriche Way Estate Gets Cooking!

Our East London Hub is delighted to be able to offer ingredients bags to the residents of Aldriche Way:

Aldriche Way Estate is a lively housing estate in Highams Park with lots of families. That’s why we had planned to have cooking sessions going on in their community rooms and the wonderful outdoor space The Shade. But as you can imagine we had to plan B this one!

If you live on the estate and would like to receive one of our bags straight to your door then please get in touch with Alice and she’ll make it happen: 07900935110 or

Our Recipe Activity Videos are based on some of our most popular recipes, including a fun, food based activity for preschoolers and toddlers as part of a healthy, nutritious, simple recipe that the whole family can cook and enjoy together.

Your ingredients bag will contain:

  • A link to a short Recipe Activity Video – with simple steps to enable families to cook along in their own home.
  • A ‘Recipe Activity Pack’ which outlines the ingredients included and gives the actual recipe in simple steps too, ensuring that even those without internet access can still benefit.
  • All the ingredients needed for the activity AND a family meal!

Lockdown has shown us that we can improve the accessibility of our resources even in the harshest of circumstances and we’ve been able to adapt far quicker than we imagined this year! The ingredients bag project has been borne out of the need to help more families access our sessions and recipes.

And hopefully will be able to run sessions in the community again soon, but for now why don’t you join our virtual family!
