We run a weekly Youth Café for at risk young people wanting to spend time in the kitchen enjoying food, having fun & making friends. Mentors are available for any one needing extra support and guests are invited to come in and discuss common issues that teenagers face.
We also run a follow on course for those who show and interest in developing their skills further. They learn about food safety, catering & hospitality and have the opportunity to plan events for the public and to volunteer at local farmers markets.
These projects improve self-esteem
& confidence, life skills, education and employability.
