#CookWithJack: Quick, Healthy and Affordable Lunch Cookalongs For Students on a Budget
The Laidlaw Foundation has partnered with Bite Back 2030 to launch a new initiative called Cook With Jack to bring you quick, healthy, and affordable meals every weekday at 12PM - perfect for students on a budget!
What is #CookWithJack?
In partnership with Bite Back 2030, we have recently launched Cook With Jack - a series of live cookalongs every weekday at 12PM which aims to teach viewers to prepare quick, tasty and affordable lunches within the weekly £15 school meal voucher budget.
Although primarily aimed at school children, the daily live cookalongs are ideal for students on a budget. All five meals add up to less than or equal to £15 per week, and can be made in around 20 minutes with basic kitchen equipment. The cookalongs are hosted by Jack Deane - a chef at the Jamie Oliver Cookery School.
How do I get involved?
You can download the weekly shopping lists here, and watch the cookalongs on Bite Back 2030's YouTube channel every weekday at 12PM, or watch the recordings afterwards. For more info, visit Bite Back 2030.

- Building a new normal, where child health is a priority, so that no child suffers preventable ill health as a result of the food they eat.
