The importance of eating fresh and cooking at home.

These days we work further from our homes, our children attend classes far and wide , and local green grocers, fish mongers and butchers have long since left our highstreets, the cost of fresh ingredients is astronomical. It is much more convenient and cost effective to feed our families Ultra Processed Food (UPF) than it is to cook a meal from scratch using local ingredients.

As a social food business we run mobile shops and hubs within our communities to get everyone, regardless of income benefiting from confident scratch cooking at home, and for those who can no longer cook for themselves we have a wonderful selection of ready meals available that have all been lovingly cooked from scratch here by our wonderful chefs.

A problem we find with our delivery method is busy families are often unavailable during the day times so unfortunately cannot make it to the mobile shops or hubs, so we have been busy finding a solutions that enable everyone regardless of income level, access to whole meals cooked from scratch in an easy and convenient way, whilst at the same time giving them the confidence and skills needed to feed themselves and their families well.

“Give a man a fish and he will eat that day, teach him how to fish and he will eat forever”
