Hello, like to know more about us?

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.

NEW in the shop, we now sell homemade frozen baked beans ready to take away, as well as a range of other home-made ready meals using only natural ingredients - perfect if you need a meal in a hurry and don't have the time to make something from scratch.  Convenience without the worry about what's in your food!

Next session - Friday 22nd May 2015 Heart Hub Healthy Cooking Demo at The United Reform Church Hall, Cross Street, Seaton, Devon, EX12 2LH 10:30-12:30

Don't forget our drop-in sessions every Tuesday 11am - 2pm and every Thursday 10am - 1pm at The Food Hub in South Street, Axminster for ideas and information including advice for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

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.

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!

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.”
