Teach a young person to cook
Your gift of £25 will fund cooking sessions for 10 young people.
Southwark has one of the highest levels of childhood obesity in the UK, over 40% of year 6 children in Bermondsey are overweight and it is so important that our young people learn how to cook and eat healthily – something few learn at home.
A gift of £25 will help Salmon Youth Centre show 10 young people how to cook a meal, to encourage them to make healthier choices, giving them an understanding of a balanced diet and easy, economic recipes. Learning to cook is an invaluable lifelong skill preparing young people for independence when they leave home – and a skill they too can pass on to their own children in due course.
