Current opportunity

Community Food Matters are looking for people to join our team of 'healthy eating' volunteers who deliver Community Cooking courses. The courses are for small groups (6-8 people) from various backgrounds and help participants improve their cooking skills and learn more about eating healthy, balanced meals on a budget. The cooking courses also help participants to reduce isolation, increase overall confidence and well-being. Volunteers demonstrate/guide participants in making their own healthy meals such as soup, lasagna, fruit crumble etc. and share tips on healthy eating, meal planning, safe storage of food, hygiene, how to shop/cook on a budget etc. Why not volunteer and meet new people, learn new skills, become part of the community, increase confidence and motivation, and have fun!
