Corporate Social responsibility activities
We are passionate about promoting corporate social responsibility or CSR activities and supporting local communities.
Companies with strong and genuine CSR policies boast more engaged employees, with increased retention, passion, and creativity.
Studies relate that “employees who perceive their organizations to be socially responsible reported higher levels of creative self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation, which in turn positively influenced their creativity at work.”
By working together to produce and share delicious meals with those in need, we forge the strongest emotional connections. With our extensive experience in CSR objectives and implementation, we will help your company fulfill and deliver your CSR commitments.
Businesses and their employees are integral members of the community, and we all have a responsibility to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves and contribute to the common good.
We have integrated our corporate social responsibility (CSR) into our business philosophy and operational activities, and we help Companies to ‘pay back’ to the community. For every donation you make – The Cooking Academy will match that donation to supplement our support for the communities in which we work (AKA Central Street, Rickmansworth Women’s Refuge, YMCA)
We have held events with numerous charities including:
- Help for the Homeless,
- Catholic Workers Farm and
- The Peace Hospice
We can work with you to produce CSR events in your local community or with a chosen charity.

CSR Event Formats
Every event is unique for each client, however, some of the most popular formats are:
- ‘Bake, Eat and Donate’: Participate in a team bake-off while also donating some of your creations to local homeless charities.
- ‘The Soup Kitchen’: Cook and serve hearty meals for the homeless and those in need.
- ‘The Payback Foundation’: Host any of our team events at venues that have hired individuals who have overcome difficult circumstances.
- ‘The Cook’s Apprentice’: Shop for ingredients in the local community as part of a cookery challenge to support local businesses.
- ‘Santa’s Little Helper’: Build gingerbread houses and create sweet treats for those less fortunate during the Christmas season.
All aspects of our events are entirely managed by our team of chefs and event managers; we provide all necessary equipment, ingredients, and even a mobile kitchen if required, so all you need to do is turn up and enjoy the day.
