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.

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.”
