EAT WELL SPEND LESS
A six-week budgeting and cookery course
Eat Well Spend Less is a free six-session course teaching people cookery skills and household budgeting tips to help make tight budgets stretch further. Typically, we look at the basics of cookery, budgeting, hygiene and nutrition.
What does it cover?
It’s an entry-level course so participants don’t need to know how to cook before they come.
Each session is two and a half hours long, covering two basic recipes as well as activities on the session’s topic. Recipes are demonstrated to participants before they attempt to make it themselves, covering dishes like a quick soup, basic tomato sauces and treats like crumbles too.
It’s very relaxed, participants cook with us and take home what they make. We also cover a range of subjects surrounding cooking and budgeting, including menu planning, portion sizes, money planning, ‘supermarket psychology’ and tips on picking up bargains.
We all learn together in a small group, so people can share their own skills and experience too. The course is fun and informal, and it’s a great way to discover new tips and techniques on how to cook quick, healthy meals on a low budget.
To equip people with cookery skills and the confidence to build upon these skills in their day to day lives so that they are able to prepare and eat healthier food.
To give an understanding of how to plan meals, both from an economic and a nutritional point of view.
To teach people simple financial management techniques to enable them to budget more effectively and avoid getting into debt.
We hope that with these skills people will become empowered to break the cycle of poverty.
