HALFF helps different groups of people learn about how to cook and eat a delicious healthy diet.
With cooking sessions, nutritional information and a fruit and veg shop in Axminster, we try to make 'eating well' easier for everyone, especially people who are isolated and disadvantaged. Take a look at our latest HALFF newsletter here.
Join us at River Cottage Canteen on Tuesday 9th February for an evening of wonderful food all sourced within 50 miles of Axminster, £25 per ticket with proceeds going directly to HALFF. For more details click here
One of our Project Co-ordinator's at HALFF writes a blog called Feeding the Five (Thousand?) "from the frontline of family cooking" - it has recipes, thoughts and the odd rant or two!
Looking for good quality organic fruit and vegetables in Axminster? At our shop The Food Hub in South Street we sell fresh produce from Riverford Organics, as well as non-organic local fruit and vegetables. All proceeds from our shop go to the community and help us to help vulnerable people.
HALFF do not receive government funding and rely on donations, our Local Giving page allows supporters to help us to help local community

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall is a keen supporter of this charity:
“I’m a great admirer of HALFF and the terrific food knowledge they are bringing to our local community. I’m always keen to find ways to support them, and I’m delighted that we are now working together to support they Millwey Youth Club.
Helping young people to learn about simple everyday cooking, and where they can find good inexpensive ingredients, is so important to their future. It fosters self-reliance and self-respect which can be a massive help in an increasingly uncertain world.
I know that helping more people to get involved in cooking for family and friends is at the heart of HALFF’s work - and it’s at the heart of the River Cottage ethos too.”
