Is my project eligible?

We're looking for food-based community projects that:  

  • are focused on a Cook and Share activity and happen within Cook and Share Month (16th Oct-16th Nov 2021)
  • have potential to be long term
  • are community led 
  • include people from disadvantaged and diverse communities 
  • bring people together 
  • reduce experience of loneliness or social isolation
  • encourage a positive attitude to ageing and diversity 

These can be virtual or take place in person. We are no longer limited to specific geographical areas so anyone in the UK can apply.
