What is Cooking Good?

Cooking Good is a healthy eating project led by Health-Works. There are a number of partnerships involved with Cooking Good, including Northamptonshire Health and Wellbeing Board, Home Start (Daventry and South Northants), snvb, Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust and Grand Union Homes. Together we are funded by Public Health England to deliver home cooking experiences to families in the more rural areas of Daventry and South Northants.The two lead consultants from Health Works are Lorraine Hirst and Louisa Gregory, pictured here delivering training to volunteers.  

The project aims to help families cook straight-forward family meals and eat good food in order to feel good, learn to cook more nutritious meals on a budget and bring families together around the simple activity of cooking. We provide teaching sessions in small groups in accessible venues or in families’ own homes. The sessions are run by volunteers (the real heroes) and are free to attend. Equipment and ingredients are provided.
