Our supporters

Cook for Good has been built on the support of some fantastic organisations. They have shared their money, time and expertise with us as part of a long-term relationship that goes way beyond the creation of our kitchen.

Some are based in Kings Cross, and wanted to give something back in a hyperlocal way; others are organisations and people who share our foodie focus and wanted to give us a hand. Whatever their reason, we’re so grateful to have them on board.
