Practitioners who run cooking skills courses have told us that they have worked with course participants who may be experiencing food insecurity and were struggling to feed themselves and their families. We wanted to explore this issue further by undertaking a short project to find out: what methods community cooking course practitioners currently use to support those experiencing food poverty/insecurity.

This report details the findings of an online survey and face-to-face interviews with practitioners and managers running community cooking groups. To complement the report, a series of case studies and ‘hints and tips’ are also available.
