Food And Nutrition

Food And Nutrition

Eating a healthy diet usually goes out the window when you’re homeless, living off scraps, hand-outs or picking things out of skips and bins.  One of our aims here at Cosgarne Hall is to educate people to cook and learn nutrition on a budget.  We cook a meal in the communal kitchen twice per week to get people together around food and socialise, learning skills in the kitchen with our volunteers.  We also cook large batches of meals such stews and chillies to freeze into portions and give to people when they first arrive at Cosgarne so they can have a hot meal and a good night’s sleep.  Another gap we fill is helping people who have been sanctioned of their benefits and are not entitled to a food bank voucher to have access to basic food rations until their sanction is lifted.

FOOD WITH FRIENDS

Bringing volunteers and residents together to learn cooking skills, budgeting for food and how to make nutrition a part of their lives is an important part of making Cosgarne feel like a home.  Please donate £3 per month or a one-off donation towards ingredients for group meals.

FROZEN NUTRITIOUS MEALS

Help us give nutritious meals to people who have just arrived and give them a chance to settle in with a warm, healthy meal from the freezer, freshly prepared by our volunteers and residents.  Please donate £3 per month or a one-off fee towards ingredients for batch-cooking for new residents to have a nutritious meal.
