Cooking up a treat

Since opening the centre in March 2011, Justlife has run a weekly cooking workshop for service users. The weekly workshop is extremely popular and sees service users learn a number of skills as well as cook some delicious food. Most recently they have made: pizza from scratch, toad in the hole, chicken caesar salad, kebabs and homemade pasta.

It is a great opportunity to teach participants about healthy eating, the cost of food and budgeting for meals.
