Want to learn to cook affordable, healthy & tasty food from scratch?
We can show you, as well as discuss a healthy diet, nutrition, how to minimise food waste, bulk cooking, the importance of introducing a wide range of flavours to children, making use of leftovers, saving money & time, how to see through the marketing, the dangers of processed foods and labelling, plus basic hygiene and safe food handling.
We shall provide a Certificate of Achievement at the end of the programme. We shall accompany this programme with a full recipe booklet outlining recipes and how to replace ingredients with what’s available. It will also be available for you to photograph using your phone.

Cooking in Hostels: how we began
Our work with hostels began in 2017 when we made a 20 minute film that deals with the complex issues surrounding homelessness.
We have cooked regularly with residents at the Longford Centre, a homeless prevention centre in Chorlton since 2018, with a variety of different funding sources.
We shall be paying ex residents, who have subsequently moved on, to help teach others, as peer educators, in the new hostels. Endorsement from David Davies, Team Leader, Shared Housing Team, Children and Families Directorate at Manchester City Council.
We shall shortly be putting out a huge call for unwanted cooking equipment in order to get more residents in hostels cooking.
