These are some of the projects in the pipeline at UK Food Aid. If there is a project that you would like to do as a joint project please get in touch
UK Food Aid community cafe
The community cafe project aims to provide an informal and affordable local meeting place, and to serve affordable, nutritious, local food.
The facility will also double as a teaching kitchen. This will enable people of all ages and especially those living on their own, to experiment with recipes, gain new skills and confidence and enjoy learning about good nutrition, buying ingredients and cooking on a budget.
Encouraging social eating will support several priority issues for Nottingham , particularly isolation, nutrition and well being. A community cafe will also aid local communications, and help to build individual networks and community cohesion. This project is also inter-generational, and can offer wide-reaching health and well being benefits.
teaching the basics
One of our projects is to set up the teaching of basic food preperation working with community centres and charity organisations
making a meal
Our experience has shown that most meals are not prepped from scratch thereby most people missing out on cooking with fresh produce and having a health a nutritious meal. Our aim is to produce videos and booklets showing how this can be done
