Whole Again Communities
5 October 2016
Whole Again Communities is a soup kitchen at the Treneere Estate’s community space in Penzance that operates on the same day as the local Foodbank. They hold community workshops as well as distributing the soup made at the workshops to the people accessing the Foodbank. The Foodbank beneficiaries and people in need are also offered recipe cards to encourage them to make their own soup at home.
A beneficiary of the workshop commented "Being involved with Whole Again Communities has given me an opportunity to be involved in a worthy community centred initiative with a view to becoming fully employed within the community as it grows. Before I got involved with WAC I had a period of ill health which meant I could not get out as much nor go to work. Since joining I have made new friends and learned new skills in the kitchen as well as developing my managerial skills. Without this project I would still feel isolated after illness."
Whole Again Communities were supported by the Penwith and Isles of Scilly Area Fund. We are now welcoming new applications for the Penwith and Isles of Scilly Area Fund. A wide range of requests will be considered from toy libraries to luncheon clubs. Awards range from £250 to £1,000.
