Free healthy eating courses

The Big Fig Catering Project (run by Care Coops) has funding to deliver free outreach healthy eating courses to disadvantaged groups. If you are working with disadvantaged groups, they can deliver a course to your groups at your venue.

The aim of these courses are to promote the benefits of healthy eating and to create a better understanding of how to prepare healthy food. The courses are delivered in a way that seeks to provide both practical work in the kitchen and classroom-based exercises. During the course the learners will be able to create a nutritionally balanced meal plan as well as have the opportunity to help prepare a healthy meal. At the end of each course, learners will receive photos of their meals, a copy of their meal plan and a certificate of achievement. Each course will run for a total 6 hours over one or two days depending on your requirements.

The Big Fig is a social enterprise catering business funded by the Big Lottery Fund which also provides unemployed people with catering training.
