Food Champions

The Larder’s Food Champions

Our Food Champions programme trains people to deliver cookery sessions & healthy eating workshops to promote healthy and sustainable food to the public, build community food knowledge, skills and resources.  The course, delivered over 8 half days or 4 full day sessions, covers basic nutrition and cooking skills, supporting participants to encourage others to cook and eat better. All you need is an interest in cooking & health and a desire to share your enthusiasm with other people. We are proud to have trained more than 50 Food Champions to date.
