Good Food Matters

Good Food really matters - we are working with those most in need to grow and cook healthy food. We want to help grow a healthier community.

Founded 2005

  • Mission statement

    We believe that it is every child’s right to know how our food is produced and how to cook for their own health and the health of the world we live in.

    We teach young people in care, leaving care, young offenders and children at risk of offending, young carers, young homeless, young refugees, young people with learning difficulties including autism and NEET young people (not in education, employment or training), how to cook healthy meals.

    We have been working in Croydon for over 10 years and during this development period we have been constantly aware that our students are often isolated from their community, most are on low to very low incomes and cannot afford healthy food options.

    Through funding from the GLA, BIG LOTTERY, Tudor Trust and Croydon we were able build a Community Food Learning Centre in New Addington, CROYDON.

    We educate and train local people how to grow, cook and market organic produce and enable our target groups to achieve long term outcomes that will have a positive impact on their health, wellbeing and future prospects in life.
