Feedback

“There was something about today that made for pure happiness. The smell of the wild garlic. The smokey fire. Sunshine unexpectedly and the company of kind, interested and friendly people.”

“It is very rare for me to be able to relax and feel calm while we are out, but today I felt just that – it was so good for the soul and engaging with the activities on offer was very therapeutic.”

“My heart is quietened by the stillness of this place. I feel rested and at peace.”

Cooking Good

Making a difference, one meal at time

Cooking Good is a community-based, food project aimed at cooking on a tight budget. It is focused on cooking from scratch, families cooking together, increasing the consumption of fresh foods and increasing cooking confidence.

Cooking Good brings people together in their local communities by sharing recipe ideas, cooking successes, cooking from scratch and on a budget, and reducing waste. The underlying focus is on supporting happy and healthy communities.

We work with agencies such as HomeStart, schools and pre-schools, housing associations, many food aid and surplus food providers such as community larders and fridges to deliver Cooking Good services and skills to individuals and families.

Cooking Good also offers essential Cooking Good Meal Bags to families in Northamptonshire – with everything needed to cook four delicious meals i.e. ingredients, recipe cards and folder, cooking equipment and wipeable meal planners. All of which is supported by online tutorials, videos and face-to-face cooking sessions.

The aim of the umbrella organisation, Community Health-Works UK CIC, is to work in collaboration with partners to deliver wellbeing projects to individuals, groups, communities or the workplace, in order to promote overall health and wellbeing and Cooking Good’s aim is to impact on public health outcomes such as reducing childhood and adult obesity and consequent ill-health. Increasing consumption of fruit and vegetables is one measure of our success. 

Other objectives are to improve mental health, to remove barriers which perpetuate health inequality, support self-reliance and reduce stigma around food and health, reduce food waste and work with others around food sustainability. Specific projects to work with particular target groups are available, such as teenage mental health, food and nutrition for older people, cancer patients, those living with life-long conditions, weight management, etc.

NN Journal

NN Journal CIC is an independent news site for Northamptonshire.

Run by local journalists Sarah Ward and Natalie Bloomer it reports on news and events of social importance in the county. 

Established as a social enterprise NN Journal’s mission is to ensure that local journalism not only survives but thrives. To this end it runs journalism training workshops with the county’s young people to inspire and train the next generation.

Natalie says: “We decided to start our venture in response to the decline of local journalism in our county over the past few years. The explosion of  social media and the demise of traditional advertising streams has sadly led to the established local newspapers either closing (as was the case with the Herald and Post in 2016 ) or having to lay off staff and reduce the number of reporters. As a result the coverage of Northamptonshire society and communities has not been as comprehensive as it once. People in power are not being held to account and the public is being let down.”

NN Journal will always provide free articles during the week to its email subscribers, but from March a paid element for members will be introduced, with bonus features.
