Cook and Eat Well
What is it?
Cook and Eat Well in Coventry is all about cooking and eating healthy, delicious food, in a fun and friendly environment.
Coventry citizens can get involved by taking part in a variety of cooking sessions, such as:
- cooking for mums-to-be
- packed lunch sessions at schools
- breakfast sessions for parents and pre-schoolers
- half day cookery workshops.
All of these sessions are free, and take place in various locations around the city. Visit the Cook and Eat Well website to book a place. You can also download recipes and find out more about the project from the Cook and Eat Well website: www.cookandeatwell.co.uk.
ContinYou is managing a special part of the Cook and Eat Well project: Community Food Champions.
Community Food Champions run cooking clubs in their local areas. They don’t need any formal qualifications; just lots of enthusiasm – for cooking healthy food, working with others and sharing skills.
Community Food Champions attend a free one-day training session on how to run a cooking club, covering topics such as hygiene, equipment, healthy eating and recipes. They also receive resources including posters, leaflets and a toolkit.
Cook and Eat Well in Coventry is funded by the Coventry Health Improvement Programme (CHIP), and is delivered by Groundwork West Midlands, ContinYou and partner organisations.
