Community Food

We have an established community garden where we grow, cook, and play together. Whether you wish to broaden your cooking skills, learn new recipes or socialise in a relaxed informal environment, our sessions provide something for everyone and at every skill level.

Building cooking skills increases confidence and provides the tools and knowledge to reduce household food costs and also food waste.

Heres how to get involved:

Cranhill Cooks We deliver blocks of cooking workshops throughout the year. Recent blocks have included our slow cooker club and soup club, adapted to cook-along at home.  

Ready Set Grow 

 A 6-week integrated programme where families grow, cook and eat together. Explore the connections between growing our own food, preparing and eating it. Learn new skills and try new foods with other families, and join us on a few outdoor trips. 

Social Cooking Club 

 A weekly cooking club where we come together to cook, eat and socialise. Learn new skills, try new recipes, and make new friends in a relaxed, social environment. To sign up for our social cooking club please fill out the form here.


Community Meal 

The Community meal provides a friendly and welcoming environment for members of the local community (and further afield) to enjoy an evening meal together each month. The community meal is a free event for all and takes place on the last Wednesday of each month. For times, please check the programme of events. 

Community Fridge

CDT Community Fridge is a space where surplus food is shared for free, bringing people together to eat, connect, learn new skills and reduce food waste.  

Partnering with the Co-operative and local donors, there will be food on offer for the community to help themselves for free everyday.
