Giving back to the community
...

Here at The Cooking Academy we feel passionately that organisations should have an awareness of their impact on the whole of society and should do whatever they can to support their local communities wherever possible. After all, as successful and integral members of the community, we all have a responsibility to help those that are less fortunate than ourselves and contribute to the common good.

At The Cooking Academy we have integrated our corporate social responsibility (CSR) into our business philosophy and operational activities. Our aim is to ‘payback’ to the community and the environment we interact with and to make a positive contribution for the benefit of all the stakeholders; communities, customers and employees alike. This strategy is incorporated throughout our business, to ensure that the objectives are sustainable, cost effective, and achievable.

Our Approach
...

We’ve done this by actively sourcing venues for our events that give back to the communities that they operate within. For example, we use The Open Kitchen in Hoxton which is part of Hackney Community College. The Open Kitchen take in and train members of the local community in catering and hospitality, giving people who have been through difficult circumstances, the opportunity to gain qualifications and employment. The Open Kitchen is about giving people hope and aspiration. The money that our events bring to the venues is reinvested into the projects they run, allowing them to help more people from the local community.

Supporting Local Businesses and Local Charities
...

As part of our cookery events, clients shop in the local community for the ingredients they will use as part of their challenge. This helps small and local businesses thrive within the communities they serve.

By holding a cookery team-building event with The Cooking Academy, you can help to do your bit by cooking and donating extra portions of food, or boxes of fresh produce, to local charities, homeless shelters, and food banks.

At no extra cost The Cooking Academy will contact our partners at local charities, and arrange a suitable food parcel, whether that’s hot cooked food from the cookery event or boxes of fresh ingredients. These donations will then be passed on in your name or anonymously to those most in need.

Many small localised charities, such as ‘Shelter from the Storm’, rely entirely on generous donations and receive no government funding. Therefore all donations are gratefully received and contribute to providing meals for up to 44 homeless people every night of the year. Homeless charity The Passage states that “every gift, no matter how small, helps us to give hope and a renewed sense of self respect to a homeless person.”
