Thanks to the Greggs Foundation and Katie Success4all were able to run 2 cooking clubs where children and young people learnt how to change, ‘Fast Food to Good Food’.
In the West End the children were visited by Mr Greggs sausage roll entrepreneur and they all experimented with Greggs’ famous sausage rolls, veggie style.
Each group were working off the same recipe, but every group chose a different spice and herb to work with. Mr Greggs was teamed with two young brothers, and they flavoured their rolls with thyme and a mild curry powder. Before his group started rolling, who was sporting his Greggs apron, showed off Greggs’ impressive sausage roll machine, and how it makes the world’s largest roll. His group were never going to be able to compete with a machine with like that, but they certainly went about making the rolls with military precision. They even put their signature on some of the sausage rolls.
Over February and March Katie, our Cooking Club Leader, had been running a Cooking Club at our Blakelaw Hub. Katie was able to run the club after raising £365 with the Newcastle University Yoga Society who had sponsored us last year. The Club ran twice a week for 6 weeks, with 5 students per class and 2 extra volunteers. We were able to make a main course and dessert per session, which we sat and ate together. The reason for setting up the Club was to inspire a love for making and creating in the kitchen to encourage healthier lifestyles, because I believe that this is fundamentally important to a child’s education and should be part of the school curriculum.
The Clubs that we run every year are dependent on the skills and interests of the volunteers who join us. Thank you Katie for bringing the enjoyment of healthy cooking and eating to Success4All, we hope to have someone to continue the passion this year!
