What is WELLfed?

WELLfed is an award-winning FREE adult education programme - based around kai, cooking skills and more.   

Participants learn how to plan, shop, safely prepare and cook low-cost healthy meals, with a strong focus on seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables.

WELLfed has been co-designed with the local community, to make the classes accessible and to ensure that the recipes and classes make a real difference.

Our programme delivers a series of interactive cooking classes, held weekly in the communities that need it most.


The first WELLfed programme started in May 2016 with a small group to pilot the concept and refine the initiative & logistics.  Five years later and still going strong - watch our 'Taste of WELLfed' video to see us in action!

WELLfed Learners practice how to:

  • Plan, shop for, prepare and cook low-cost healthy meals

  • Best use seasonal, fresh fruit and vegetables wherever possible

  • Budget and find ingredients to get "more for your dollar"

  • Apply safe food handling and storage techniques

After SIX years of WELLfed...

  • 900+ unique Learners now have skills, confidence & equipment

  • 10,700+ free meals have been taught, cooked, and taken home to share

  • 66,000 people have been fed with meals made by the community for their families

  • 25,000 ​kg of food has been rescued from landfill

  • 8,300 items of kitchen equipment have been given out
