“Big Cook 2024’s BRITE Box sets sights on record-breaking mass cooking event”

Kingston-upon-Thames based charity Voices of Hope has announced the launch of the BRITE Box Big Cook 2024, as part of its 4th anniversary celebrations and in conjunction with Healthy Eating Week. The event, which will take place from June 7th to 9th, aims to be the largest mass participation cooking event in the UK.

The BRITE Box Big Cook 2024 encourages households to join the existing 700 BRITE Box families in preparing and cooking the newly released ‘Rainbow Pasta’ recipe. This recipe aligns with the Healthy Eating Week initiative, promoting the consumption of more fruits and vegetables.

The goal of the event is not only to raise awareness of the BRITE Box project, but to also set a record by having over 3000 households cook the same meal at the same time. The recipe can be downloaded from the Voices of Hope website at www.voh.org.uk/britebox/bigcook2024.

For those living in the Kingston area, there will be 100 special edition BRITE Boxes available for purchase and delivery. These can be ordered by June 5th on the Voices of Hope website. All proceeds from the event will go towards providing BRITE Box recipe meal kits for local families in need.

In addition to the Big Cook, BRITE Box will also be visiting two local primary schools on June 10th and 13th, as part of the British Nutrition Foundation’s Healthy Eating Week. The charity will engage children in fun and interactive health and food related activities, while also raising funds for the BRITE Box project through ‘non uniform’ days.

The BRITE Box project, which stands for Building Resilience In Today’s Environment, was founded by Voices of Hope in 2020 to address increasing levels of food insecurity in local communities. Through the joy of cooking, BRITE Box aims to reach as many families as possible and build resilience for generations to eat and live well together.

The project provides weekly recipe meal kits, complete with all necessary ingredients and a child-friendly illustrated recipe card. BRITE Box also helps tackle food insecurity and health inequalities, while also promoting lasting behavior change for physical and mental well-being.
