We have made a commitment to donate 20% of the Festival’s profits to the Trust which we hope will ensure the continuity of support and enable the great work that it undertakes.
The Christchurch Food Festival Education Trust is a registered charity offering education, training and guidance on healthy eating and on food preparation.
Much of the Trust’s work is undertaken all year round in partnership with local schools. Our annual schools cookery days begin in February and Christchurch’s junior schools, around 1,000 children, take part. Another schools’ event is a cookery challenge for budding young chefs which culminates at the Food Festival. It is also here that the ever-popular Kids’ Kitchen events take place.
The Trust can only undertake the work if funding is available and the Trustees are very grateful for the donations that enable us to continue our work; we thank them all. Recent funders include the Santander, Dorset Community Foundation and individuals. The Rotary Club of Christchurch continues to be a tremendous supporter.
