Learn to cook

Cooking your own meals can be a key part of a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle. But not everyone knows how to cook, or has the confidence to cook.

Every year Medway Cooks! run free, fun and healthy cookery workshops and courses for families with children in Medway to take part in. Learn how to make vegetable pizzas, turkey burgers, fruit granola pots and crunchy coated chicken strips from scratch. Here's the feedback from two happy participants:

"A really enjoyable course! Well worth coming along to. My daughter very much enjoyed taking part and cooking and it was nice to watch her getting involved"

"Absolutely loved the class. My son is a fussy eater and cooking with him has made all the difference. We’d love to come again!"
