Solent FOOD Action is a weekly cook along project running for 8 weeks between January- March 2024.
We have released 8 easy to follow cook along videos on our Facebook,Instagramand YouTubechannels featuring staff during which we cook meals chosen by the young people we work with. The videos are targeted at young people, helping them to learn some cooking basics and create their favourite meals in a healthier and more affordable way.
Alongside the videos we are delivering ingredients each week to cook these meals to families who sign up. This is provided completely free for families, and distributed on a first come first served basis, with us targeting households with children and those with young people aged up to 25 with additional needs in the Eastleigh Borough. At the end of March each family will also receive an £80 voucher to purchase food to recreate all of these meals again.
The menu for weekly meals is as follows:
WEEK 1: Homemade Burger and Chips
WEEK 2: Spaghetti Bolognaise
WEEK 3: Brinner
WEEK 4: Chicken Pie
WEEK 5: Roast Dinner
WEEK 6: Pizza
WEEK 7: Chicken and Bacon Pasta Bake
Week 8: Chicken Goujons and Wedges
Videos are released every Friday morning, and accessible via the video below:
