People who are vulnerably housed or homeless are more at risk of a poor diet, and Covid-19 may have increased this risk.

Join our cook-a-long workshop at the Community Kitchen to learn the basics of a balanced diet, key barriers to achieving this, ideas to improve diet when money is tight and facilities are limited, and the chance to share local knowledge and work together. You also get to make a delicious soup!

  • Why an affordable healthy diet is essential to health.
  • Key messages from the PHE Eatwell guide.
  • Barriers to eating well that vulnerably housed people face.
  • Simple efficient tips to eating better on a budget.
  • Ideas on how to use ingredients from food banks and emergency parcels.

For those who have attended our classes in the past, the key changes are that we now ask everyone to wear a face covering when moving around the room, and we are of course keeping to social distancing during the classes.
