Food Academy is over the moon! We have completed our first training programme of Newham Food Champions, a programme designed to train the trainers! From the start, our intention was to find a way to ensure that our hands-on messages of how easy and fun is to cook delicious meals could reach as many people as possible. This training the trainers programme allow us to train volunteers and community/school organisations staff so that these Food Champions network can run themselves fun cooking programmes and workshops in their local communities. Our teachers have provided intense training to our first cohort of brilliant volunteers and have shared with them our knowledge and experience on how to run successfully cooking classes and community events. We are delighted to say that our students have excelled at these tasks starting the new year they will be practicing their new cooking and demonstration skills in many community and school events all around Newham.
