From free six week courses for adults with no qualifications to workshops for vulnerable people, it’s about helping everyone to build the skills necessary to cook healthy food from fresh ingredients.
“We find that people at drop-in centres and hostels are better able to work with raw ingredients once they’ve been cooking with us for a while. It’s about confidence to think that you could chuck some of that swede in your mash potato, or pan fry that fish – or whatever!”
“Recently we received a glut of lemons from Fareshare South West and all of our community classes here have been using them. Our children with Downs Syndrome made lemonade, One25 (an organisation working with vulnerable women) are making Lemon Tarts, our over 60’s group made lemon curd and Knowle West Health Association made chicken with lemon sauce”
