On Friday 21 February 15 children, who attend the community house, took part in a ‘chef school’ at the Downlands Toby Carvery.
During the two hour session the children took part in various activities which focused on the importance of eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, and saw them sample some new foods themselves. They also had to design their own chef’s hat with the winning entry, by Tasha Steele (age 7), receiving a voucher for a meal for four so that she could return with her family.
At the end of the morning everyone was treated to a fantastic roast carvery and presented with a chef school certificate.
Emma Wallace, community development worker said: “The chef school was really well organised and the manager, Neil Barnett, and his team made us feel really welcome. We do lots of activities around healthy eating at the community house so it was great fun for the children to show off their knowledge and of course everyone enjoyed the lovely meal too.”
The chef school was a part of a programme of free activities provided by the community house in East Worthing. Other activities include cook and eat sessions, krafty kids, gardening and a multi-sports session.
