To build a modern equipped kitchen with our youth and community centre. To stock the kitchen with surplus food that would otherwise go to landfill, working with local community larders, Fareshare, Food drop, The cloud etc To invite families to come together to share recipes, cook together then take home and feed their families. To invite elders in from local sheltered accommodation to share stories and recipes from their lives with the youth from our community. To teach our young people healthy easy to cook food, on a budget in a modern kitchen inspiring a love of cooking.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
young people and adults will be inspired to cook, exploring the options of a career choice. Different sections of our diverse multi-cultural community will come together and feel valued, like they belong, breaking down barriers. Elders will have purpose and space to share their life experiences. Isolation will be reduced, friends will be made. Young people will be given the chance to shine, build relationships with the community, reducing the sometime negative reputation they get. Food that would otherwise go to waste will be used, saving the environment, saving money, reducing poverty.
