Wiggly Charity

Gloucester-based charity with a mission to empower people through food. Wiggly provides inclusive, accessible cookery workshops for vulnerable, disadvantaged and disabled people of all ages and abilities. Wiggly workshops and courses empower individuals by building kitchen skills for life, improving self-esteem and confidence and bringing communities together. Our flexible approach eliminates transport barriers and allow us to reach individuals who may not otherwise be able to access traditional cooking schools or workshops.

Wiggly sessions are interesting, practical, engaging and fun. We offer value for money, specialist teaching, in a safe and inclusive environment. Wiggly recipes are designed to be seasonal, budget-friendly, simple and tasty. We focus on people’s strengths and tailor our classes to individual abilities so that everyone can succeed in cooking and sharing a delicious meal, regardless of ability or circumstance.

Worrying About Money Leaflets

Following on from the successful leaflet for Stroud and The Cotswolds, Feeding Gloucestershire worked with IFAN to produce a ‘Worrying About Money’ leaflet for each of the districts in our County, these leaflets are now printed and distributed across the county and are available online through the IFAN website.

Feeding Gloucestershire coordinated with IFAN and the Trussell Trust and delivered 2 online training workshops in July 2023. A recording of the online workshop is available here.
