Healthy Eating 

We know that the cost of living crisis is making it harder for people to stay healthy -  as things like food and everyday essentials have become more expensive.

If you are looking for help making your food and money go further you can find courses on the Somerset Skills and Learning website, or you may be able to join a community cooking group.

There may be a community fridge or larder nearby.  And some towns provide community pantries. These are membership schemes where, for a small fee, you can receive a mix of fresh, chilled and dry foods.

Some areas of Somerset also offer a low cost or free community meals

If you'd like help and advice around healthy eating or where to access low cost or free food, you can contact a village agent or citizens’ advice and seek a referral for a foodbank.
