Food and Mood

How does food impact our mental health? How can we use basic number skills to scale up or down a recipe according to our needs? How can we search for suitable recipes online? What do all the instructions mean in a recipe? With thanks to funding from Swale Borough Council, we are providing a new course for people in the local area to learn these skills and find out more about how what we eat affects how we feel.

Full course details are below and dates will be added as soon as they are confirmed; in the meantime, please complete the enquiry form below and a member of our team will contact you.


What will I learn?

Across six weeks, you will explore how to improve your relationship with food and understand more about the links between food and mood. Each week, you will receive the ingredients for a new recipe, as well as step by step details on how to prepare it. 

During the session, you will have the opportunity to meet new people and chat to our wellbeing team about any specific mental health needs you might have. You will learn more about how to prepare meals on a budget, how to increase or decrease quantities according to your needs, what key words mean in recipes and how to search online for recipes that appeal to you.

How much does it cost?

The course is entirely free and all participants will also receive a free slow cooker, set of scales, calculator and all the ingredients to make a new recipe each week!

Who is this course for?

Adults aged 18+ living in Swale.

How long does each session last?

90 minutes.

When does the course start and where will it take place?
