We are Eat Club
A London based charity since 2014


We are Eat Club – A charity improving young people’s relationship with food.

Our youth cooking courses are designed to improve the relationship people have with food to address the underlying barriers to healthy eating and improve health and wellbeing.

We believe that delicious wholesome food, prepared from scratch and eaten together can help young people lead happier, healthier lives. We apply this same ethos to our supper clubs and bespoke events.

We are Eat Club - A charity with a difference. Youth Work.

Eat Club’s mission is to tackle the stark inequalities around food, well-being, and employment and development opportunities experienced by young Londoners. We engage disadvantaged young people through the art of cooking and the enjoyment of eating – together.

We are Eat Club - A charity with a difference. Solo Supper Club.

The Cook Social is an exciting venture from Eat Club. We run on the principle that no one should eat alone. Whether you’re looking to meet new people or simply to sharpen your knife skills in good company, our doors are open. All you need is a healthy contempt for a microwave meal for one!

We are Eat Club - A charity with a difference. Your Event.

Team Building

Join Eat Club in the kitchen for a fun, practical and truly unique event. Whether tactile team building or a special celebration, we’ll cater to your needs in a sleek central London kitchen. Get in touch to find out about our corporate packages and let us create the perfect event for you.
