The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership are an incredible non-profit organisation that's all about FOOD in its many, wonderful different shapes and forms. The team at Brighton & Hove have a few key goals: helping people learn to cook, eat a healthy diet, grow their own food and waste less food.
Through a variety of fun, informal and hands-on events, the Partnership aims to connect and inspire individuals, community groups and organisations. They believe – and Wriggle are right there with them on this – that food is more than just fuel, it brings people together and changes lives.
Earlier this year the Partnership set themselves a mission to raise £20k to kit out the new proposed Community Kitchen in the Community Base building on Queens Road. There was an overwhelming amount of support from local Brighton residents as well as local and national businesses, and within a month they hit their target. The Set, Silo and and 64 Degrees were amongst the advocates who offered masterclasses as prizes for crowdfunding donations. Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food cooking programme, will be delivered at the school too. Teaching you how to create nutritious and delicious meals in a fun and engaging way.
The main aim of the brand new cookery school, is to support health & wellbeing within the community through a range of brilliant classes with chefs and food experts. The partnership have been teaching people to cook for almost 10 years, but they are over the moon to have this new base where the entire community can come together and enjoy the benefits of cooking and eating together, regardless of finance, confidence or ability.
Here at Wriggle we are huge fans of this new initiative and have teamed up with the Community Kitchen to offer you some exclusive Wriggle discounts on selected classes.
