Can I cook it? Yes, you can!

Whether you see it as a creative outlet or just a chore to keep you fuelled; being able to cook is something you might well take for granted. For some people with disabilities though, cookery can be a great challenge. But with your support, the Vegetarian Society Cookery School can help people.

Meet Amber; she lives in Manchester, likes art and going out with friends. Amber is a member of Can Do Manchester, a programme giving young disabled people the opportunity to volunteer, meet people, and learn new skills.

Amber took part in a course at our cookery school, funded by Vegetarian Society supporters, exploring all the fun of being in the kitchen. Nothing flash or fancy – just hearty, honest meals she could make herself. 

But these courses aren’t just for fun.

 

We know they change lives. Supporters like you are equipping folks to learn crucial kitchen skills, such as getting confidence with a knife, and learning what a properly balanced meal looks like. 

But our story doesn’t end there. The week after Amber’s course, we received some post; a photo of a beautifully made sausage casserole. Amber said: “Making the sausage casserole was amazing. I thought I would treat my family and let my mum put her feet up after a long day.”

Something tells us this won’t be the last time her mum gets treated to a night off. 

Help more people like Amber – join today!
