Food For All would like to expand their services to the local community by turning their currently unused basement into a community kitchen. A hub where local food can be distributed, processed, shared, celebrated and used as the basis for cookery classes.
The project aims to increase the consumption of local food by providing a facility for locally harvested fruit to be processed into sugar-free jams, preserves, fruit leathers or bottled. Classes and workshops for the local community will revolve around local food issues, local food utilization, healthy eating/cookery on a budget, utilising local food in multicultural cooking and seasonal eating.
The key aims of the project are:
Increase consumption and processing of local food.
Reduce food miles.
Reduce the amount of waste of locally grown fruits.
Health and well being of community.
Teach life skills.
Celebrate cultural diversity of food.
