However, regularly skipping meals and not eating enough affordable, nutritious food affects how our body functions. From our mood & energy levels, to how susceptible we are to getting ill, and our chances of developing certain diseases. What we eat can help us to feel better and be healthier.

We hope that we can give you the confidence to cook more, be able to use different ingredients and learn what a balanced diet looks like.

Our four-session course run over two weeks will help you develop some life skills, get to grips with budgeting, know what to do with ingredients that get donated, and eat tasty food the makes you feel good with limited equipment, ingredients and money.
