The Cooking Group
From Planning to Eating
Cooking programs allow community members to further develop their cooking skills so that they can independently cook healthy and cheap meals. Foodies support a group of community members as they plan, shop, prepare, cook and eat a healthy meal together. Though this process, community members build confidence, knowledge and skills to eat healthy food, and can increase the consumption of healthy foods by the participating community members.
A Southern Fleurieu Foodie from Victor Harbour runs a cooking program with a group of men, where the group prepares a meal; including planning the meal and shopping for ingredients, then sit down to enjoy the meal together.
“It’s not me preparing the food for the guys – it’s the guys doing it themselves- that’s why it’s called Cooking with Blokes not Cooking for Blokes”
Peter Forster- Community Foodie
“I believe that there’s a great need in our society for people to educate themselves about good food, good nutrients, to keep good health, particularly in older age”
Peter Forster – Community Foodie
