The project aims to improve the social, mental and physical well-being of people in the community. These are people who may lack confidence in cooking skills, feel isolated or are going through a tough time. They will benefit from being part of a social group that are all learning cooking skills together.

Deciding as part of your team what the themes for each session will be i.e. hearty soups for winter or picnic food in the summer. Volunteers will guide participants with kitchen hygiene and safety and preparation of dishes, setting up and clearing away, eating together and socialising.

Qualities and Skills required:

  • Basic knowledge of healthy eating and food hygiene principles (full training provided) and cooking skills.
  • Ability to encourage and enable other people as part of a small team.
  • Patient and understanding, especially of those who have never cooked before

Volunteers are needed to help with these sessions in Cullompton and Tiverton
