Charles Reynolds Foundation donates £5,000 to Whole Again Communities
Whole Again Communities (WAC) is a social enterprise which encourages and supports people to learn to cook good quality, affordable food from scratch so that they can embrace healthy eating at home, based in Penzance.
WAC provide gardening and up-cycling workshops to help protect and enhance their local wild growing spaces and provide opportunities to gain employment in the flourishing Cornish Catering Industry. The grant funds will help build on the success of their virtual cooking workshops by delivering fresh ingredients and recipes to vulnerable families. Phoebe & Stephen of CJ Medical visited WAC on Wednesday the 24th November 2021 to present the cheque and learn more about the wonderful organisation.
Phoebe commented “it was fascinating to visit the local community and learn what the enterprise is all about. The organic garden (built from the ground up) is used to grow vegetables and fruits which are then up cycled into food boxes for the workshops. It was great to see a sense of community”
Stephen Commented “Whole Again Foods is a well-run and well needed support centre for the community. The food distribution and meal prep courses are obviously a great attribution to the local area. Additionally, WAC also provide a space for local children to learn how to work on and repair their push bikes and scooters which is a great skill for anyone to have. They also have an organic garden with plenty of opportunity for local children to be involved with planting, pruning, cropping, and general upkeep. WAC is an all-around safe space for children to learn and grow”
