WHO WE ARE
Empower to Cook CIC, a social enterprise in Buckinghamshire that uses food education to support vulnerable communities. Through food, we improve confidence, motivation to try new things, build valuable life skills and improve the physical and mental well-being of everyone we work with. Empower to Cook champions a local need for better food education in communities, bringing long-lasting changes to people’s health.
Based in High Wycombe there is the highest concentration of children living in low-income households in Bucks. Deprivation in the midst of wealth gets missed.
We offer simple, effective, and inclusive ways for people to engage with food. Be it environmental, seasonal produce, and use of food waste/surplus. Our classes focus on people learning by doing rather than by watching, generating the confidence to maintain new habits that are incorporated into daily life.
