Our Cookery School

Greenwich Pantry is a London based family business founded on the principles of healthy eating. The cooking school was set up as a response to personal experiences that led to health challenges and food played a major part in addressing those challenges. We teach our participants to cook, make and bake while promoting healthy eating principles.

Food sustainability is very much at the heart of our organisation and we remain passionate about home cooking as a means to food sustainability and ensuring that our class curriculum cover a wide range of cooking experiences. These experiences build confidence in cooking for people from all backgrounds and age group; our youngest participant is 3 and the eldest is 80!

Proudly, we are Living wage employers and accredited by the Good Business charter. This commitment keeps us striving to be the best we can be as we believe that no business is too small to be responsible. With our approach, to work, our staff can bridge the gap and contribute to their own welfare and wellbeing, working flexibly while supporting their families.

The impact of Covid-19

Financial support for our business (which was completely self sustained until March 2020) is limited since we are not eligible for most government grants. Additionally, since our main venue is a school building, we are closed until the school says it is ok to reopen and this impacts our usually buoyant group classes. 

In the meantime, to continue running classes into the future, we have to transition through Covid-19 and kick start our business by pivoting into online learning for groups.  We believe this is possible with a robust platform and plan that provides as close to the 'in person' classes as possible. 

How your support will help

Funds raised will be used to help the transition, by creating an offering to build our online school, train staff, and support marketing efforts to generate revenue until our venue fully open for in class experiences.  An important aspect of this endeavour is to enrich the lives of our participants and food enthusiasts who want to learn to make cooking their 'thing'.

In a recent child and adult baking class, here's what one participant said:

"We loved the class. Especially the friendly and professional team. All the ladies made us feel welcomed and comfortable creating a great atmosphere. Also the recipe was yummy and easy to follow". Malgo, North London
