East Bristol Children’s Centres received funding from the Bristol City Funds – No Child Goes Hungry Grant Programme, towards interactive cooking sessions for low income families; providing practical experience in growing food, cooking and eating well on a budget, skills that can be repeated in the community and at home.
Amy Goodwin, Community Development Worker at East Bristol Children’s Centres said:
“We were really pleased to hear we’d been approved for funding from City Funds to enable interactive cooking sessions for low income families in Frome Vale.
The funding will provide practical experience in cooking & eating well on a budget, skills that can be repeated in the community & at home. In addition, staff, together with parents will learn skills to teach the sessions to other families, creating a sustainable model that can be shared across East Bristol.
Empowering families to have life-long skills to change their preparation and eating habits to increase well-being and family connections.
We’ve waited to start the project until after the lockdown restrictions have been lifted, as getting together and eating as a community is such a big part of this project.”
