Leeds Cookery School is a social enterprise and trading subsidiary of Zest-Health for Life, a Leeds charity.
The cookery school’s aims as a business are:
Zest is an independent not-for-profit organisation and registered charity which offers support and opportunity to people living in disadvantaged areas of Leeds. We aim to address health inequalities and social isolation through activities which improve physical, mental, social, emotional and economic wellbeing. The organisation has its roots in East Leeds, but now works citywide.
Jamie’s Ministry of Food Leeds is an evidence-based 8-week cooking course which gives people basic cooking skills, healthy eating information and support with shopping and budgeting. Established in 2010 it is operated by Zest in partnership with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, and funded by Leeds City Council’s Public Health directorate. The main MOF cookery centre is located in Leeds Kirkgate Market, but the project runs outreach courses at Leeds Cookery School.
