Why Community Table?

Learn about the rationale behind our Community Table programme


Community Table group sessions are dedicated to affordable, speedy, hands-on healthy eating and cooking activities. The sessions give people a fun, informal, straightforward way to achieve a healthy diet. We focus on the joy in making something from scratch, preparing and sharing food with others, discovering new and interesting flavours and gaining confidence in the kitchen.

What makes Community Table special?

  • All of our recipes are easy to understand and use affordable, accessible ingredients.
  • We encourage a balanced diet, which means variety - and the occasional treat too!
  • We favour flavour, using plenty of fresh ingredients, whole grains, herbs and spices.
  • We prepare things from scratch whenever possible.
  • We adapt trusty favourite recipes to make them healthier, without compromising on taste.
