Project Food sessions to resume in November

We are delighted to announce that we are resuming our FREE cooking sessions in November.  Starting in our kitchens at Axminster Hospital, The Crowshute Centre in Chard and Marshlands Centre in Seaton, our friendly supportive groups will offer cooking demonstrations to anyone that would like to learn how to cook healthy and nutritious meals to help improve and support their own physical and mental health or that of their loved ones.  Learn how to cook healthily on a budget, get helpful tips on cooking great meals for just one person, learn what recipes are great for batch cooking and get some new ideas and inspiration from the Project Food team and others attending the group.

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to our sessions and would love to see some new faces to join our friendly groups.  They are a great place to meet new people that share an interest in food and cooking. We will of course serve lunch at each session which is a great opportunity to socialise and try what has been cooked at the session.

Sessions start on the following dates and run from 11am – 1pm.

Axminster Hospital Kitchen – Tuesday 9th November

The Crowshute Centre, Chard – Tuesday 16th November

Marshlands Centre, Seaton – Friday 12th November

The sessions will be once a month. All session dates are on the ‘cookery class calendar’ option under ‘What’s On’ on our home page.  Please contact the Project Food team for more information.  Call 01297 631782 or email
