Decorating the tables for our celebratory feast
Members of Sharing Memories joined forces with children from Lydgate School for children with complex needs, and a group of adults from Growing Works who are recovering from mental health issues, to learn about healthy eating.

We received funding through Awards for All to provide opportunities for children with special needs to learn all about healthy eating, shopping for food, and preparing simple soup and bread recipes.  The project started out on a local allotment where we joined forces with members of Growing Works, who are all adults recovering from mental health issues.  We learned to identify common vegetables, created quirky vegetable animals, went shopping in Holmfirth Market and cooked simple soup and bread recipes.  The project culminated in a celebratory meal for 60 friends and families with the children preparing and serving soup and bread, having designed the menus themselves.  They had great fun serving everyone and also produced a pack of six colouful recipe cards which were given free to local schools and are available in shops in Holmfirth.
