Standbridge Lane Community Centre in Kettlethorpe has now opened its new kitchen facilities thanks to support from WDH, and has plans to hold Cook and Eat courses for local residents.
The kitchen underwent a big transformation with the help of the centre’s volunteers who cleaned it from top to bottom, a group of young volunteers who helped paint the kitchen and staff from WDH who completed joinery and plumbing works.
Following the opening of the kitchen, the Community Centre is now working with the Community Food and Health Team from the South West Yorkshire Foundation Trust to provide Cook and Eat classes for local residents.
The classes will involve cooking and eating healthy dishes but will also promote healthy eating, confidence in the kitchen as well as shopping and budgeting advice. The sessions last for 2 hours and the course itself lasts 5 weeks. For more details or to book email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Councillor Monica Graham said: “I want to thank everyone for their help in getting the kitchen up and running and enable us to get this healthy eating project started. This is only the beginning we have had more money pledged in order to help us achieve our dream turn the kitchen into a Community Café.”
