We are delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded National Lottery funding!
The new grant from the UK’s largest funder of community activity will allow us to develop our strategic leadership skills, and also create new opportunities for other parents of young children to improve their mental health, build skills and create new opportunities for themselves, alongside looking after young children.
We are so excited that we’ll be able to bring fun and inclusive food activities – and real opportunity – to more families at a time when it’’s needed most. After a year of isolation and uncertainty, our community is reeling. Mums have often borne the brunt of some of the pandemic’s most devastating effects – lost childcare, playparks, support networks, jobs – in the ten years we’ve been family cooking we’ve obviously never seen anything like it. This is a much needed injection of support – for us as a team, and the other parents we are now able to support.
