We use food to inspire people to make positive change in their lives and empower them to unlock their future potential.
Whether you are an individual who would like to gain new skills and discover exciting opportunities, or a business who wants to help their employees to develop, we can help you grow.

“Having completed the Foodworks course, and gone on to do both the Level 2 Food Safety Certificate, and my barista training, I have so much knowledge I didn’t have before. The fact that there’s no pressure has meant that I can go at my own pace, which is unlike so many other programmes out there!”

“Because I am registered blind, the knife skills were really handy to learn – and I haven’t cut any of my fingers off yet! Since being on the FoodWorks course, I have been cooking from scratch at home, drinking more water and losing weight at the same time. I’ve also become more adventurous. I recently made a curry and my husband and grandson loved it!”

“This course has been really useful for me, because it’s changed my life at home and has helped me to lose weight. It will be really useful when I start college in two weeks. I’m training to become a teaching assistant, which is one of my dreams!”

“It’s increased my confidence at home – it means that I don’t have to rely on my mum to cook food for me anymore. Being on the Foodworks course has also helped me to lose weight.”

“I actually think this is the best contact I’ve had from the food bank. FoodWorks has changed how me and my son eat. We now have food competitions and we also go out and around Truro to forage together.”
