Cook and Share Month

Across the country this autumn, community groups, schools, children’s centres, faith groups and more will be getting busy in the kitchen, making food to share with each other.

Whether you’re dishing up daal, sharing a sarnie or passing round the pasta, food is a great way to break down barriers and bring people together. Why not share your favourite meals, recipes and food memories too?


 It’s easy to get involved:

  1. Sign up for free on the website
  2. Cook a meal, snack, anything!
  3. Share with your community: in person, online or at a distance

We’ll send you free resources to help you prepare a snack or meal to be shared with those in your community – either in person, online or socially distanced.


There’s lots to help you plan a fun-filled Cook and Share activity - including a guide to doing your own online cookalong, recipes to suit all abilities and an Eritrean daal cookalong.

Take a look at our toolkit here.


Feel confident rustling up delicious food for you and the community to enjoy and eat together with our free online training. Find out more here.
