One of the barriers to a healthy diet is having the skills, knowledge and confidence to shop for, and prepare, healthy meals. Community-based cookery sessions can offer a relaxed environment to learn cookery skills.
Sessions can either happen within an existing group or be open to all. They might take place in a local community centre but some areas have community kitchens for hire.
CFHS works to demonstrate the benefits of community cookery sessions, and to share learning from community food initiatives in order to improve their practice.
Our plan for 2022/23
CFHS is currently working with the Scottish Government, community food networks and our colleagues in Public Health Scotland to plan how the community food sector can be supported in the future.
