In this workshop, people are invited to prepare a meal together (soup, marmalade, cooked vegetables with pita bread, etc.).
Wash, peel, cut, cook, and eat!
This workshop nurtures a good environment to talk and share with gardeners or inhabitants about their stories, representations and food practices.
Cooking workshops could take place outdoors, in public spaces or in an inside kitchen. They can be used as a community empowerment tool by :
raising awareness about the community’s needs and their food resistance methods by discussing the resources of the neighbourhood;
promoting the knowledge of inhabitants, and particularly vulnerable people;
sharing a convivial moment of commensality (act of eating together);
building a supportive community by exchanging informal discussions about the local food system.
