Springfield House Community Special School

PROUD of our Roots


Springfield House School is celebrating Cook and Share Month, which follows on from our very successful Plant and Share Month last term. During Cook and Share Month communities around the country will be joining together to enjoy great food and conversation. 
As a school we believe that there should be a place around our table for everyone, so we are inviting all of our families and other members of the school community to get involved in Cook and Share Month. 
Each week we will provide links to themed resources that help to remind us of all the reasons it's so good to cook and share: Cooking for People, Cooking for Pleasure, Cooking for the Planet and Cooking for the Pocket.

Week 3: Cooking for the Planet - 13 November - 19 November
This week we focus on how food can have a positive impact on the planet, by looking at eating food that is locally grown, in season, and organic. There are also some handy tips on volunteering, which is a great way to cook and share with our communities or loved ones.
