My core work is One To One consultations, however here are some collaborative projects that Nutrition For Change has been involved with over the years – if these wet your appetite, check out my full list of services here:
- Nutrition for Change works with Synergy Creative Community through ‘The Food Project’ which I designed and facilitate. Synergy are an arts based community group which supports people with mental health challenges. I work with volunteers in the kitchen to create healthy lunches for the community to share together. I also run nutrition workshops for community members exploring the links between food and mental health.
- I led a project to create a Synergy recipe book called “Feast Your Eyes, Nourish Your Mind”, which is currently on sale in Foodshed at Brighton Open Market. I collaborated with A Healthy Day and HiSbe leading a pilot project delivering a weekly food box with recipes to Synergy members. This increased people’s access to healthy seasonal foods and made trying new recipes more fun.
- I designed and facilitated a workshop for the Brighton and Hove Bipolar Support Group specifically exploring the latest research in nutrition and bipolar conditions.
- I facilitated the creation of a recipe book with Capital Project Trust which is a peer led mental health organisation. This involved cooking together with members and creating simple original recipes to encourage people to cook from scratch with fresh ingredients.
- I worked with The Young Parents Project in Brighton; a scheme set up to support parents aged 25 and under. Workshops and cooking sessions helped people to understand how the food they ate affected their health and wellbeing.
