Community Food for Thought – JIG-SO Children’s Centre
Outreach services to tackle child poverty and in-work food poverty. The project will introduce a rural support kitchen service to four test areas in North Pembs and allow a large number of parents/grandparents to access the support for family food ingredients and training service.
The Community Food for Thought initiative will pilot the project in four rural communities, namely St. Dogmaels, Boncath, Cilgerran and Hermon, utilising the local community halls as venues and potential partners in supporting the project to attempt to tackle the above challenges. The aim is to run two sessions per month in each community and engage with 12 families per location over the course of 15 months. The sessions will focus around Food Poverty and Food Waste, Healthy Lifestyles and Intergenerational Activities.
The project will work with all generations within the family to improve health and emotional wellbeing by encouraging healthy eating and lifestyles; fostering positive relationships and maximising income, reducing stress and anxiety of those families living in rural poverty and thereby decreasing isolation and addressing local needs.
