Food Education Trust


Cooking lessons are on the curriculum in 2015 at Princethorpe Junior School in Birmingham. Pupils at Princethorpe Junior School can now discover how to prepare and cook delicious dishes and tasty treats thanks to the new cookery equipment donated by The Food Education Trust.

“Government cuts have limited vital resources for many schools in the UK, I firmly believe learning how to cook meals from scratch using fresh ingredients, is a vital life skill that is declining thanks to the UK’s reliance on pre-packed and processed foods. With a little confidence and know-how it is easy to prepare and cook meals and freshly-baked treats from scratch. The Food Education Trust seeks to help schools encourage cookery classes by providing much needed cookery equipment and advice.” Comments Romilla Arber, Founder of The Food Education Trust.

“We are delighted with our donation from The Food Education Trust. This will enable Princethorpe Junior School to host regular cookery lessons and the pupils will be able to prepare and cook a wider range of dishes thanks to the comprehensive selection of equipment we have kindly been given from The Food Education Trust. As a school we feel it is important to teach our pupils necessary skills that will equip them for life and cooking is one of these vital abilities.” Enthuses Denise Henbury, Business Manager for Princethorpe Junior School.

The Food Education Trust provides donations to worthy causes, in order to promote the benefits of a home-cooked diet and teach children and adults that with a little knowledge and confidence they are able to reduce the amount of processed and pre-packed food they consume and create healthy meals from scratch on a daily basis. The Food Education Trust has equipped thousands of children and adults with essential cooking skills. In the five years’ since it began it has touched the lives of over 25,000 people. The charity is funded by sales of Romilla’s cookery books “What’s for Dinner?” and the award-winning “What’s for Dinner? Second Helpings” both are available to purchase in all good bookshops and online at
