Join us and start cooking from scratch

What do we offer? 

Here at Well-Fed we are on a mission to get you and your family to eat well and cook easy and our programme was created with this in mind.

The programme is centred around building people’s relationships with food and getting everyone in the kitchen cooking from scratch, which is crucial for health and wellbeing.

Whether you have never cooked, lost the love of cooking or simply just need some inspiration we have something for everyone.

The recipes covered during our four-week programme have been specially selected to cover a range of cookery skills so that you can begin your journey to become a confident at home cook.

“Cooking for a family can often be a chore, but it really doesn’t have to be. Our slow cooker bags are fresh, tasty, nutritious and convenient”.


Rachael Oley – Well-Fed Social Projects Manager

How does it work?  

We run our Eat Well- Cook Easy Programme in local communities and work with groups of 10-12 over a four-week period.

Everyone who takes part receives a free slow cooker, fresh food tasters at every session and takes home two of our recipe bags free of charge each week.

Participation is arranged via our network with local authorities and community leaders.

What’s in our Slow Cooker Bags?

Our slow cooker bags come packed with all the ingredients you’ll need alongside an easy-to-follow recipe card to create a tasty slow cooked dish. These typically feed a family of four (two adults and two small children or three adults).

Options Include;

  • Italian Meatballs
  • Pulled Chicken
  • Beef Hot Pot
  • Chicken Jalfrezi
  • Sticky Honey & Garlic Chicken
  • Ham & lentil Soup
  • Sweet Potato Curry (V)

What’s in our Recipe Bags?

Cook Easy Bags are designed to make cooking from scratch as easy as possible! Our cook easy dishes have been created to take the stress out of cooking with simple meals and simple ingredients. Like our slow cooker bags, all of the ingredients come measured out for your convenience with an easy-to-follow recipe card.

Options Include;

  • Thai Red Chicken Curry
  • Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta
  • Beef Kofta with Mushroom Pilau
  • Chicken Chasseur
  • One pot Spanish Rice
  • Thai Style Chicken Kebab
  • Mushroom Risotto (V)

What is the social impact of the programme?

The Eat Well-Cook Easy programme has an extremely positive impact within local communities and the benefit to the participants is hugely beneficial. We know that eating well can drastically change the way someone thinks, feels and helps with decision making and general well-being.


“If people eat well, they cope well and if they don’t, they don’t”.

Charlotte – Slow Cooker Programme Participant

“I attended the slow cooker course through Well-Fed and I can honestly say it has helped me so much. Before the course started, I had literally no knowledge of healthy eating and had built up a bad relationship with food. From growing up in a disadvantaged family who had access to very little or even no food at times, to developing an eating disorder in my late teens, I couldn’t even cut a vegetable, let alone think about tasting them.

I had little confidence in cooking and as a single parent of three children, I realised that I needed to make changes. I then joined the sessions and everything was literally explained step by step and the Well-Fed team were so patient and made me feel at ease. Now after four sessions I have gone away with so much more confidence and knowledge to pass onto my children and set a example that good, healthy food can be easy to prepare and is cheaper than premade convenient foods”.
