Volunteer with us this summer!

20 May 2019

As we head into our busiest time of the year, we're looking for a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers to help us deliver lots of cooking and food growing sessions in schools across London.

If you're keen to learn more about food education or want to get more experience of cooking or growing with children and young people, this is a fantastic opportunity. We have a team of exceptional chefs and horticulturalists who have a huge amount of experience inspiring young people to learn about making good, sustainable food. Most of our sessions happen in schools, so it's also a good chance to get more experience in this particular environment. 

We have workshops happening across a number of our projects including Schools to Market, Know your Onions and Healthy Zones

Most sessions last 1-2 hours, with some set up and clear up time before and after and will happen during school hours.

If you are interested in any or all of these projects, please email dela@schoolfoodmatters.org as soon as possible.
