News from Cooking-Good

New Cooking-Good website

Following the impact of COVID-19 and necessity to move from face to face community and home cooking to additional online education and resources, we have updated the Cooking Good website so that it is now even easier to navigate with a better search function across all recipes and lots of great visual material. In the spirit of partnership, we invite you to take a look at the new site and comment via this short survey link. All feedback is valuable and will be used to develop our services moving forwards, so thank you for your help with this.

Also, please check our Facebook page – this is mainly where our current campaigns and new material are shared.

Free School Meals and cooking support

With the arrival of the school summer break, we wanted to respond to the difficulties some families face in the holidays with food and how to use the Free School Meal vouchers.  We have recently and will over the coming weeks be posting lunch ideas videos as part of our ‘Midday Munches’ campaign. This is to give families some lunch recipe ideas, all within the FSM budget of £3 per person. There is also an accompanying article which is packed with some useful tips i.e. using leftovers from the previous night’s dinner, batch cooking etc.

Other campaigns

Further video campaigns are in the offing and more will follow – so long as Cooking Good is able to secure funding to continue it’s work. One of those being developed is the ‘Looking After Yourself’ series created in partnership with local Social Prescribing Link Worker, Tessa Matthews, and relating to the current COVID 19 crisis. The first video is a look at alcohol, the recommended limits for adults and suggested ways to manage our intake during these stressful times. Watch out for it on the Cooking Good Facebook page.
