Do you want to feed your community?
One of our core projects involves training parents to become food ambassadors–enabling them to run healthy cooking sessions for families in their community. Our training courses take place over about 5 weeks and are led by our experienced community food workers. The course involves participants gaining their food hygiene certificates and practical cookery sessions, including a fun ‘ready steady cook’ challenge finale. Our vision of the project is to build a self-sustaining, strong and healthy community, with a focus on eating lots of fruit and veg and reducing food waste.
Food Ambassador Programme +
Once you complete your Food Ambassador programme you can opt in to Food Ambassadors +, improving and developing your digital skills, employability and confidence. With the help of a mentor, embark on a research project offering different perspectives around food, sustainability and well being, culminating in a live zoom presentation.
Here are a couple of quotes from some of our parents on our programme:
‘It’s been really cool. I thought it would be really stressful but it’s really relaxing and at the end you’re feeding a part of your community which is wonderful’.
‘So far it’s been amazing being part of helping to make different cultural dishes. It’s a great feeling to give back and support the community’.
We will be running a new programme in January 2021.
