Hackney Council commissions a variety of providers to deliver ‘cook and eat’ classes at community locations across the borough, including in some of Hackney’s most deprived neighbourhoods. These classes raise awareness and develop skills among participants about food buying and cooking healthy meals on a budget. In 2015/16 over 70 ‘cook and eat’ courses were delivered on nine estates. Over 700 residents have completed a four week programme.
