Lifestart Cook for Kids is a major fundraising event for Lifestart that embraces food, adults and children. Businesses, schools, community groups and families can don an apron and grab a spatula to host a morning tea, lunch or dinner at home, school or at work and serve their favourite treats.
Held from 20 - 27 October 2014, the inaugural Cook for Kids promises to be a recipe for success.
Participants are encouraged to share a meal with their friends, work colleagues or family, and make a donation towards the meal to raise money for Lifestart’s early childhood intervention and school age inclusion programs supporting children and young people living with a disability or delay, their families and carers.
Cook for Kids can be carried out anywhere - at home, in the office, in a playground, a picnic, in a store or in a shop.
- A group of people who love food
- An event to cook for - morning tea, month of birthdays, anniversaries, awards, sporting achievements, lunch or dinner
- Participants bring and share a plate or host the event
- Mix in some generosity and goodwill with fun activities
- Make a donation towards the meal
- Send the donation to Lifestart - hosts can register as an individual, corporate, sports team or school and invite colleagues, friends or family to attend and donate to Cook for Kids via a donation box or through an online fundraising platform.
