A Taste of Health Cookery Clubs

Are you interested in learning some new recipes, making new friends and becoming healthier to boot?

If so, then the cookery clubs are for you!

GCDA run 50, 5-week Community Cookery Clubs each year throughout the borough that are open to the public. The clubs run in all different parts of the borough in community venues and are open to all.

The focus is on making small changes that can have a big impact on your health such as measuring your salt and oil so you can start reducing it, or finding easy ways to try to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, making simple swaps to help reduce the amount of sugar you consume and loads of tips and ideas to help reduce waste and save money. All the ingredients and equipment are included and participants who attend at least 4 of the 5 weeks will receive a fabulous recipe book to help them continue their journey at home.

Although the clubs do focus on healthy eating messages, they’re really about informing people and giving people the skills and knowledge to make choices themselves. But, the best thing is that becoming healthier is just ONE of the benefits. Participants report many great benefits from attending the clubs including meeting new people, being more social and becoming more active.
