The Community Kitchen project has been created to give families the opportunity to get new ideas on cooking healthy, fun meals without breaking the bank and most importantly, cooking as a family. Sessions are being held at Marriotts School on Saturday afternoons, 4pm-6pm starting on 6th October and are totally FREE, with spaces for 6 families per course. As well as sharpening culinary skills, families will also be given some top tips on topics like sugar swaps, planning meals, getting in your 5 a day and more. Led by Stevenage FC Foundation, sessions will be delivered by Hannah Marsh who over the last three years has been the driving force behind the Get Active project in Stevenage to help improve the health and wellbeing of residents.
