Garioch Community Kitchen provides practical cooking sessions for members of the local community. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
Our mission is to improve the health and eating habits of the people living in Aberdeenshire
The kitchen is run by a voluntary committee supported by representatives from NHS Grampian and Aberdeenshire Council. The committee members have a wealth of experience in the catering and hospitality industry as well as nutrition and teaching qualifications.
The project aims to encourage practical cookery skills within local communities, raise awareness of healthy eating messages, food hygiene and deliver training through its brand name ‘Confidence to Cook”. The kitchen offers a variety of courses, including practical cooking skills, nutrition and food hygiene courses and ‘Training for Trainers’ courses for members of the community and support workers. REHIS accredited Food Hygiene and Nutrition courses are also available to those seeking to increase their knowledge, skills and employability prospects.The training kitchen welcomes all ages and groups of people, from all over Grampian, whatever their skill level may be and is also available for hire by individuals wishing to run their own courses.
