The Craft Guild of Chefs has joined forces with LACA (formerly Local Authority Caterers Association) to open up its successful Family Food Appreciation workshops to even more British schools.


The workshops, which see professional chefs going into schools to teach children and parents cooking skills, were launched in 2010, but, until now, have been independently run by the Guild.


By joining forces with LACA, the Guild has better access to schools and the support of a ‘trusted’ education catering body behind it, with six LACA member schools from different regions across England and Wales about to receive the first round of workshops under the new collaboration.


The first round of these workshops will be at:

  • Maendy Primary School in Cwmbran – 8th February
  • Blossomfield Infant and Nursery School in Solihull – 13th February
  • Oasis Academy in Brightstowe – 21st February
  • South Bromsgrove High School – 21st March
  • Lincoln Gardens Primary in Scunthorpe – 27th March
  • Jubilee High School in Surrey - 19th April
