Healthy Cooking Classes For The Whole Family
Our new educational, healthy eating cooking sessions are designed to teach families how to cook healthy meals on a budget. We organise different cooking events and weekly cooking sessions that teach everything from the basics to more advanced cooking.
Whilst community members take part in our cooking, there are also opportunities to sharpen up on IT skills as they help us to prepare our forthcoming Community Cookbook which will be published in time for Christmas 2019. The IT sessions are taught by young people who are equipped to pass on their skills in using mobile phones, iPads and computers to maximum effect to make sure the end product (community cookbook) is fantastic.
There are many benefits to learning how to cook in a healthy way and on a budget. Some of these are:
Learn to cook the healthiest meals for your family and friends
Get in shape with our healthy meal plans
Improve your skills in cooking as well as IT (If you need it)
Meet like minded people and make new friends
Use our kitchen and equipment to test your own healthy recipes
Save money as you learn the best ways to cook for your family
So what’s all the fuss about our healthy cooking classes, workshops and events and how can you get involved?
Our community kitchen was an under utilised resource until the beginning of 2019 when we received a grant to buy the equipment that we needed to finish off that space. We have developed a series of cooking classes, courses, events and workshops that teach families and individuals how to cook healthy food whilst saving money.
During our sessions participants get an opportunity to not only watch someone cook, but take part and cook themselves too. The project teaches real skills that can be taken home to directly impact the diets of the family’s taking part. With everything from vegan, alkaline, plant-based and other forms of cooking, to making smoothies, juices and healthy desserts, we have a class or cooking session to suit everyone.
These informal and friendly community sessions are not intimidating and you do not have to be a master chef or know how to cook at all. Come and learn at your own pace and cook with us.
If you would like to get involved in our community cooking sessions either as a participant or volunteer and want to find out when our next class or event is being held, contact Jennifer on 01274 720254. You can also send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This project is being funded by the Brelms Trust and we would like to express our gratitude to them for giving us the opportunity to develop our healthy cooking classes for families in the community.
