The Manor’s Urban Cooking Collective

This is a Healthy eating and cooking programme run by Aston Mansfield for young people 11-14 years old who:

  • Are struggling with weight management
  • Are suffering from food deprivation
  • Have poor eating habits

Each week the young people get a meal kit containing a recipe card and the ingredients to cook a meal for their family.

The team will work with the young people and their families to ensure that they have the kitchen equipment they need to take part in the programme and families will also have access to a weekly food distribution service “Little Manor Supermarket”.
