Description

The supper club runs at Ramekin and Rolling Pin in Lenzie, every Wednesday evening 5-7pm. This is open to our neurodivergent community members. This is an opportunity for them to be supported to cook simple, healthy, inexpensive meals on a budget. Participants always get a chance to share a meal together as well and enjoy the social nature of that too.
