The Cookbook Initiative
Create your Own School’s Healthy Cookbook & Promote Healthy Eating Whilst Fundraising
Learning and Teaching Resources
The Cookbook Initiative offers a great resource to help fundraising in schools. Each school can have its own cookbook to sell at any fundraising event, and the website also promotes healthy eating amongst school children and parents.
The website offers a free sample with no obligation to purchase, and the idea can be adapted to form some very interesting lessons! The cookbook can link to lesson ideas in science, design & technology and art & design, depending what approach you take with your students. The Cookbook Initiative could be just part of a whole event in school that includes a school fundraising project with links to healthy eating. This fundraising resource gives children a creative opportunity, on both the design front and the recipes they come up with.
A great opportunity to get the parents and kids involved in something that would definitely be fun, with the added bonus of raising some funds for whatever it is your school is aiming for!
