Our founding service, which supports, on average, 30 adults and children each week, through times of hardship, be that serious illness, or financial challenges. The service allows families to sit down at least once a week to share a nutritious and home-made meal, together as a family, without the worry of having to cook or spend money on ingredients.

Here is what one Mum said about the service –
“Caring Cooks helped us when I had major surgery last year and was unable to walk more than a few steps at a time for weeks. My husband was working full time in the day and teaching two nights a week and looking after our two girls. The weekly meals were such a great help I am ever so grateful to you”
