Food for Thought sessions in Hunstanton

Free food sessions to help residents trying to make ends meet, due to increasing food costs, are being held at the Town Hall.


Lily, a service that is owned and managed by the borough council, is organising 12 weeks of interactive sessions. The Community Hub in Hunstanton Town Hall, PE36 6BQ, is hosting the weekly drop-in meetings between 9:30am and 11:30 every Tuesday and the photos were taken at the session on bread and dough on 30 January.

Cllr Jo Rust, Cabinet member for People and Communities, said: “I’m pleased to see that Food for Thought is now coming to help residents who live in and around Hunstanton following well attended sessions held in Downham Market and King’s Lynn.

“Previous sessions have made a positive contribution towards overcoming social isolation and loneliness. They are sociable and family friendly, children are welcome to attend with an adult. People can turn up at any point, and stay for as long as they can, but also get to taste food cooked by a professional chef. As the increasing cost of living continues to affect all of us, I believe these free weekly sessions will prove invaluable to local residents.”

Each week there will be tips about how to cook healthy and tasty food without breaking the bank. The themes to be focused on are listed below, booking is not required:

Week 2 (6/2): Lunches
Week 3 (13/2): Dinners
Week 4 (20/2): Snacks
Week 5 (27/2): Healthy eating/fruit and veg
Week 6 (5/3): Dried and tinned foods
Week 7 (12/3): Batch cooking
