When Hylda Emsden of Trinity Methodist Church heard that clients of the local foodbank weren’t always sure how to cook the ingredients they received, she came up with an ingenious solution.
Hylda got together with other volunteers from churches across the region to offer cookery classes to anyone who wanted to come along.
The group aims to cover a huge variety of foods and ingredients, including main meals, desserts, soups and cakes. All are low cost, easy to prepare and nourishing, and there’s always plenty of practical advice on offer.
The cookery classes are run in partnership with a number of churches in the area, and all are funded by the churches themselves.
The courses have been so popular that they have been running ever since.
