Jamie Oliver Food Foundation

Cooking and Nutrition Courses for Families

We have teamed up with the world-renowned celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation and Ministry of Food to encourage healthy eating across the North East.

Having enhanced their cooking skills with Jamie's Ministry of Food, our staff are teaching parents in schools throughout the region how to make delicious, nutritious home-cooked food as part of our Family Learning programme.

With funding support from the Players of the People's Postcode Lotterythe partnership will help hundreds of families make keeping active and eating healthy on a tight budget an achievable goal.


Knowing how to cook using fresh ingredients is one of the most important life skills you can have – and it’s great fun for kids and adults alike.

I am excited that we are making this connection through our work with Sunderland AFC and hope it is the start of something that keeps growing.
