The Healthy Cooking Team deliver cooking skills to the Middlesbrough community.
The service we deliver is bespoke, addressing the needs of the organisation or community group we are working in partnership with. Sessions can include cooking on a budget, healthy eating, basic cooking skills, train the trainer sessions and Level 2 accredited food safety training. We have recently delivered a slow cooker project which has proven very popular with our residents.
We work in the community, taking equipment and resources and require only a room, hot water and washing facilities to deliver our sessions.
We work in community hubs, schools, churches and with community groups across Middlesbrough. Our aim is to teach residents how to cook nutritious meals for all the family and to deliver the healthy eating messages in a relaxed and informal way. Residents get the chance to try the food, ask questions and develop new cooking skills in a friendly atmosphere.
The team are also partners for the Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme; promoting suitable venues in the Middlesbrough area for Mothers who want to breast feed their babies without prejudice.
Look out for the Breastfeeding welcome logos displayed in and around Middlesbrough.
