Whole Again Communities is about people, communities and soup!
Healthy Affordable Soup Workshops in Cornwall using locally sourced produce
Whole Again Communities (WAC) is a community interest company. We bring people together to make soup. By creating their own soup, people can get new ideas on how to live more easily on ashoestring budget.
WAC encourages and supports people to learn to cook quality, affordable soup so that they can embrace healthy eating at home. We also help people to create their own recipes.
To help us sustain our initiatives, we also sell soup direct on stalls and at events.
WAC is currently focusing on delivery and using community venues in the West Cornwall.
History of WAC
My name is Liz. My inspiration for WAC comes from years of depending on delicious homemade soups, especially at times when I was living on a very low income. This allowed me to indulge in my passion for healthy food and a positive approach to life.
I am a trained chef and have run healthy food workshops for young mums living at a refuge, people aged 50+ on health-related benefits, and men participating on drug/alcohol recovery programs. Being involved in these projects has helped me to deal with my own learning and confidence issues, and led to work in community learning and employment support. I am keen to combine my skills and experience to support others through WAC.
Myself and my friendly enthusiastic volunteers run soup and chat weekly sessions at our local Community space in Penzance as well as across the locality.
We are supporting and encouraging each other to cook quality, affordable soups, so we can enjoy healthy eating at home. We help people to create their own recipes to suit the dietary needs of their friends and family.
We recruit and work with volunteers who develop their skills and confidence and act as ambassadors for WAC providing a friendly ear and encouragement for others to cook and eat healthily and economically.
We have already inspired and supported enthusiastic residents to make great healthy food using local produce and, in doing so, build up their own confidence and resourcefulness. We are training people to take this idea out to encourage healthy eating in other communities.
Why We Are Crowd Funding?
We require extra funding to carry on the great work we do with people.With extra investment we would be able to expand our operations out to a wider audience.With your help and support through Crowdfunder, we hope to increase the amount of people we help as well as develop a new range of lovely, healthy tasting soups that not only sustain you but also more importantly, sustains the community.
