Community Cooking

Kaleyard offers workshops and courses to suits everyone –
irrespective of age, experience or lifestyle.

We offer classes that you can come to on your own if you are either over 60, suffer from a disability or mental health issues, are on income support or socially isolated for any other reason.

If you are a charity or another community interest company that wishes to work with us, we would love to hear from you via email

International Flavours of Scotland 

We offered free classes to St. Oswald’s High School in Castlemilk in 2019, and we created a term based programme that helped this additional learning needs school to teach their children about the modern multi-cultural landscape of Scotland through the flavours of these migrants and refugees. The term ended with a competition to test their understanding of the new ingredients that were used over the term.

We provide a free programme for Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector organisation that supports over 60 individuals across the city.

We also aim to help inspire children and adults by finding the love of local, seasonal produce and creating simple home cooking.

Our aim is to help end social isolation by the uniting power of cooking, eating and sharing food together.
