We regularly run activities with people who find it difficult to cook healthy, low-cost meals. We also run bespoke programmes, both under our own banner and with local partners, for those living with dementia, learning disabilities, physical or mental ill health. We welcome all self referrals, but due to the number of spaces available we may have to prioritise those who would benefit the most at certain times.
All participants typically get involved in preparing a healthy meal together, where they learn how to whip up delicious, low-cost meals with store cupboard essentials and foraged food (when the weather allows!). As a group, we end our workshops with a shared lunch and shared experience, giving folk a chance to kick back, chat about what they've learned together, and make new friendships over their meals. It is important for us to help equip participants for cooking at home by sharing our tasty recipes as well as tips for keeping healthy and happy when time is short and money tight. Sessions also cover key cookery skills, advice on healthy eating and nutrition, and tips for smarter shopping.
