Kaleyard is Glasgow's first non-profit
social enterprise cook school

Kaleyard’s mission is to unite people through cooking, eating and sharing food together. 

The old Scot’s word “Kaleyard” means a kitchen garden, a word that defines the ethos of our cook school. We believe that anyone can cook cost-effective, seasonal and nutritious food from scratch. With a little help from us, we hope to inspire you to find the confidence to cook, eat and share.

Become a Partner

We work directly with schools and community organisations and are supported by a network of both charitable and commercial partners. Please join us!

Join as a Volunteer

Kaleyard wouldn’t exist or be successful without our dedicated team of talented volunteers. Come and join us, flexible opportunities available.

We also aim to help inspire children and adults by finding the love of local, seasonal produce and creating simple home cooking.

Our aim is to help end social isolation by the uniting power of cooking, eating and sharing food together.
