Food Works! – 8 week Practical Food course

Posted on 28th November 2018 by Lauren Parry

Monday 21st January, 10am to 1pm, Greener Kirkcaldy’s Community Training Garden, Ravenscraig Walled Garden

Food Works! Greener Kirkcaldy’s volunteering and employability project, offers local people in Kirkcaldy, food and horticulture volunteer training opportunities. Our Food Works! programme is about building confidence, developing knowledge and improving skills in food and growing which will help participants into education, volunteering or employment.

The programme starts on Monday 21st of January and will run for 8 weeks. Participants will take part in a practical cooking programme covering all aspects of food and cooking skills and will include lunch.

We’ll also provide access to accredited courses i.e. First Aid at Work, and Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) Elementary Food Hygiene and Elementary Cooking Skills.

Our programmes are held in a friendly working environment which helps mirror many aspects of a workplace. Participants can also volunteer with us to build on their experience and learning.

No experience is required – if you are looking to learn some skills, get some practical experience and training, we’d love to hear from you. We’re particularly keen to work with school leavers too.

If you are interested contact Geraldine O’Riordan on 01592 858458 or email
