working with one housing
I ran an online zoom cooking/nutrition course with One Housing in Camden, we made some really yummy dishes and we all had a fun time. Recipes and tips were learned and shared and stories were told
working with carers in herts
I ran a series of cooking zoom workshops and webinars ( including e-learning)
In our webinars we covered diabetes and gluten-free cooking, these provoked some greater discussions!
Thanks to the grant I was able to reach out and help all these carers. Due to Covid face to face workshops had all come to an end, so being able to adapt to offering the classes on line has been amazing. By doing these classes, it has given me the confidence to offer live streaming cooking class which are also available on YouTube. Some of the carers have subscribed which means they can still benefit from ideas and thoughts around food and nutrition.
Some of the comments: from the carers themselves
It's helped them feel less isolated by sharing the challenges of cooking for someone who is disabled or can't/won't eat certain ingredients. They've enjoyed chatting to others about something that is unrelated to caring and have appreciated the flexibility of attending over Zoom.
One participant said “Sarah’s cooking has been great fun and I have enjoyed sitting back watching. Loads of handy tips from the group means I now have a cupboard with spices and herbs and found I like quinoa and buckwheat for healthier eating."
