Meath Green Junior School in Horley, Surrey are running events throughout the year to fund the contents of a cooking room. We are looking to purchase, bowls, cutlery whisks, chopping boards, saucepans, graters and other equipment to fill our room.
In addition to this we are also applying for external funding to build the new food technology room. At MGJS we want to give opportunities for children to experience both nutritional aspects as well as basic cooking skills leading to:
Knowledge of different food types
Exploring cooking techniques,
Combining ingredients to make a meal
Understanding of nutrition
Long term health benefits
We would also like to involve parents and families who have the time to cook with their children along with members of the community who have skills in cookery.
