Over the last 9 years, Kids Kitchen Collective  have been supporting families to cook healthy plant based meals from scratch while building relationships, communities and essential lasting support networks for families with young children across the country. At this time of social isolation this is more essential than ever.

The spaces carers and young children usually access to help them get through the challenges of being at home with young children are all closed. The church halls, community centres, cafes and libraries. This makes spaces like the free online sessions Kids Kitchen Collective are running all the more important. The online sessions offer carers the opportunity to spend great, fun, quality time with their children in a supportive environment. This Crowdfunder is to ensure we can continue to do this, plus rebuild our physical sessions once this is over.


We do our best to meet people where they are. Before COVID-19 we were popping up in parks, community halls, a playbus and on street corners. We are now doing dedicated outreach work and connecting with partners to ensure we can meet the needs of all families. We’re doing what we can to make sure everyone who needs us knows about us. We’re also liaising with front-line services and tailoring our recipes to what mutual support groups and food banks are able to distribute.

Why it’s needed

We usually cover our costs with grants, but more and more, grant funding is being diverted to cover emergency response to the current crisis. We can’t justify hiking our session prices up, because community cooking should be accessible to everyone, not just those who can afford it. 

That’s why we need your help. With all the funding for small non-profits like ours falling through, it’s harder to build a safety net to help Kids Kitchen continue. 


We have big plans. Currently we share techniques for cooking with locally-sourced, plant-based foods and cutting down on food waste. We plan to build on that and are developing an online course to help families learn more about sustainable food practices. 

We want to extend our training offer too, helping more people bring Kids Kitchen to their communities and beyond. 

In short, we want to continue supporting families now, and building towards a healthy future for young people and the planet.


But we can't move forward if we don't get through this time. To do this, we need to raise £8,000 before the end of June. This will help meet the cost of reaching 500 families in the next months and provide security to continue our work in a post-COVID world.  

If you’re able to, please consider contributing to keep us going. Any amount, no matter how small, makes a difference and is so appreciated. 

Thanks so much and please take care.
