Although Cooking Buses can be used in many different ways, our standard programme model involves a week-long visit to a local area.
This allows us to create a deep impact on more people, and enables us to ensure that the Bus leaves a powerful legacy after we leave.
Here’s an idea of what a Cooking Bus visit might look like:
We base the Bus for a week at a school, community centre or other location that will enable a range of local groups to attend.
We train teachers and community group leaders to teach cooking effectively to their pupils and group members. This training includes practical help with setting up cooking classes, lessons or clubs to ensure the Bus leaves a legacy of cooking.
We teach children and young people to cook while teachers observe the sessions to enable them to learn from our teachers and reinforce their CPD training.
Local vulnerable groups come on board to learn healthy cooking skills while group leaders observe the sessions to enable them to learn from our teachers and reinforce their training.
We can run sessions for parents, after-school cooking clubs or drop-ins for local health commisoners or other key stakeholders.
