Cook for Good is a social enterprise that tackles food poverty and social isolation in inner-city areas, connecting businesses with the communities on their doorstep, for the benefit of both.
We run a surplus food pantry on an estate in Kings Cross, and are building a community kitchen from which we’ll provide free cooking classes and meals. We also host cooking-based teambuilding experiences, sharing the profits (and the food) with local residents.
Join us on 20th September for an intimate supper cooked by Ed Balls and our community volunteers, in our new community kitchen on the Priory Green Estate. Ed will also demo his signature cheese souffle and share stories and recipes from his highly varied career. All proceeds will support our work tackling food poverty and education.See more and book

With our kitchen almost complete, we're getting ready to welcome teams back in to cook, connect and have fun together. We offer a choice of formats, a massive range of menus and loads of fun. Take a look at the different options and feel free to contact us for a brief chat or a full proposal.Find out more
We’ve joined forces with The Felix Project (FareShare) to create a surplus food pantry at our Kings Cross kitchen. Members pay £3.50 a week, which entitles them to come in and shop for a basket of fresh, frozen and storecupboard ingredients (worth between £15 and £25).Register your interest
What you have brought to our community is something that other estates just don’t have. 2022 is going to be such a tough one for people around here… it is great they will have somewhere to come.
This was by far the most inspirational and purposeful team build I have ever attended. Working to achieve something with such a positive impact is a significantly more meaningful way to demonstrate the power of teamwork than any activity I can think of… take it from someone who has spent many a day herding ducks, building towers, escaping from rooms and numerous other forgettable, throw-away activities.
Remote working means we have had to be creative in finding opportunities for team building and engagement online, and this was a perfect solution. We had a fabulous afternoon cooking with the leadership team and their families, led by the very talented Robinne Collie, from Cook for Good. It is a tremendous social enterprise whose profits go back into the community. Thank you.
We’re looking to create connections, boost skills and reduce food waste, within our community and beyond. Here are our magic numbers.
We’d like to keep you up to date with our plans for new classes, meals, events and other Cook for Good news. We won’t bombard you with emails and you can opt out at any time.
