Budget cookery class is food for thought
AFOOD bank has expanded its work feeding families in the community with a new cooking course.
The Food Friend scheme at St Bartholomew’s Church in Wilmslow helps more than 130 individuals and families with food parcels. The group is now offering a budget cookery course by volunteer and former teacher Christine Little.
She is demonstrating how to cook low-cost family meals and then families can take ingredients home to cook themselves.
Christine said: “It’s a great pleasure supporting people in cooking. We can help them make the most of their food bank parcels, get them involved in the food preparation and come up with tasty, healthy results.”
Food Friend operates on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm. Flo Knowles, manager of the scheme, said: “Donations of long life food supplies for our parcels are always needed for our work to continue.
“We welcome people bringing donations along during these times too.”
Drop in or contact Flo on 07592 582567 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
