Wilmslow Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
