No HALFF Measures in South Street, AxminsterHALFF 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.

Our popular HEART HUB helps people with or at risk of heart disease, high blood pressure or stroke, and people with type 2 diabetes.  Membership includes cooking demos, talks on healthy eating and twice monthly newsletters including recipes and tips.

Make and Munch Sessions teach parents of young children about a healthy diet and how to cook simple meals that are both nutritious and tasty, helping children to grow up healthier and be able to enjoy a better quality of life.

HALFF run regular cooking and nutrition courses at supported housing units and youth clubs for vulnerable and homeless children and teenagers.

At one of our recent sessions HALFF teamed up with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Head Chef, Gelf Alderson, who demonstrated how to cook savoury pancakes stuffed with green pepper, watercress, onion & garlic followed followed by sweet pancakes - with a sprinkling of sugar plus a squeeze of lemon / orange juice.  All the children (and the adult helpers) wolfed them down!


Need a hot lunch or a nutritious ready meal for the family?  At our shop No HALFF Measures in South Street, Axminster we make and sell fresh and tasty hot soup to take away, and make healthy ready meals from our local ingredients for you to take home and serve. 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.”
