OUTREACH COOKERY CLASSES

Our weekly outreach cookery classes are run specifically for people who experience marginalisation from society. This time in the kitchen provides an opportunity for people to learn and share skills around food, build connections, create and share food and feel at home.

Each class is run and organised in partnership with Bristol-based drug and alcohol services, mental health organisations, refugee and asylum seeker groups. Our partners include:

The small groups we work with help decide what we'll cook each week depending on their own personal needs and preferences. For example, we may make meals that can be created on a limited budget, mood-boosting foods, healthy one-pots, or foods that can be cooked and then frozen for another time.

Thousands of individuals have now taken part in these cookery classes since we began in 2011.

“I always wanted to learn how to cook and bake properly but never knew where to start. Now I can do it and I’ve been busy making the recipes at home with my family. My kids are getting involved as well, it’s really great and brought us together. It was so good to meet other people in the cooking session, we had so much fun, sharing stories and listening to music. I always felt so uplifted after each session. I can’t wait to go back!”.
