COOK AND SHARE WORKSHOPS
Great Taste supports older residents in Powys, who may be experiencing loneliness, depression, or stress-related issues, by providing weekly Cook and Share workshops to enable socialising and develop crucial lifestyle skills in the form of cooking. Groups come together to socialise, cook nutritious meals from scratch and develop cooking skills and creativity, as well as share tips on sustainability, meal planning and budgeting. After cooking in the morning, groups will share their creations for lunch, with plenty of time to relax and chat.
The workshops provide financial self-support strategies by upskilling participants in planning and purchasing food within a limited budget, and showing off a range of options for these price points. Creativity in cooking is not just for pleasure's sake - having the knowledge and skill to work with your limitations opens up huge budget and health advantages! Throughout the course, we will talk through and reform meal plans and food budgets amongst our participants (confidentially, if desired) in specially designed workbooks. Participants are also provided with a shopping voucher to spend on quality cooking ingredients or utensils to support them to put their skills into practice at home.
