Free food sessions to help King’s Lynn residents trying to make ends meet, due to increasing food costs that have already proved popular in North Lynn are now coming to South Lynn.
Lily, a service that is owned and managed by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, is organising the interactive pop-up sessions to be held at The Cornerstone Café, inside Cornerstone King’s Lynn Baptist Church in South Lynn. Norma’s kitchen will be running both planned sessions.
Cllr Sam Sandell, Cabinet member for people and communities at the borough council, said:
“Following successful sessions in North Lynn it’s good to see them introduced in South Lynn. The cost of living is already affecting many of us and these free to attend sessions mean that people can drop-in to them and pick up handy tips about how to cook healthy and tasty food without breaking the bank.”
The first free bite size session will be held on Monday 24 October between 10am and 1pm. This family-friendly drop-in session will include half term activities, Norma’s Kitchen will be cooking up a storm and will show how to make healthy nutritious meals on a budget by shopping smartly and using low-cost ingredients. There will also be taste comparisons.
Children are welcome to join their parents during this half term event. There will be colouring activities and refreshments available. People can drop in any time between 10am and 1pm.
A further bite size session is being held on Monday 5 December. Residents can pop in at any point between 10am and 1pm. This session is Christmas themed and will include cost-effective ways of celebrating the festive season.
