Braunstone Cooking Skills

Food Security

Access to healthy, low cost food and ingredients is a challenge for many people on low incomes across the country, and food security has become a bigger issue as support systems have been reduced.

Together Leicester is a Christian voice on the Feeding Leicester Steering group, which is part of the national Feeding Britain network. In this role we are leading on the Key Theme of Building Food Security – the development of cooking skills, financial skills and advice, food growing and digital access.

As well as listening and consulting with communities in different wards in Leicester City, we have started a 6-session pilot course in Braunstone Park, working in partnership with b-inspired Braunstone, and which is hosted by St Peter's Church, Braunstone.

Our aim is to work in partnership with other local organisations and churches to build capacity and enable more of these courses to be run for the benefit of local communities.

If you are a community organisation or local church and you would be interested in partnering with us to run a cooking skills course, please contact Sian Rigby: Sian.Rigby@TogetherLeicester.org.uk
