Cook4care was set up at the beginning of 2020 with the specific aim of helping young carers and their families in the Surrey area. ​

With an estimated 140,000 young carers in Surrey alone, many schools have children as young as 5 or 6 years old who fulfill caring roles within their families. Our mission is to provide healthy and nutritious meals for children and young adults who help to care for members of their household.

Cook4care gives families the opportunity to have a tasty meal delivered to either their home or schools, two to four days a week. Ultimately we hope that by reducing the time that young carers spend in the kitchen, we will lighten the load and enable them to spend more time with their families and friends. 

Working in conjunction with a growing network of organisations that  supply surplus foods to charities such as ours, we are able to not only help our local community, but also help by using food that would otherwise go to waste.
