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.
The links on the side navigation of our website give more information about our events, aims, and various community projects. Please also feel free to call us on 01297 631782 if you would like to speak to a member of our team about becoming involved, joining a community group, donating to HALFF or other queries you may have about us.
STOP PRESS: Next week River Cottage Chef Gelf Alderson will be teaming up with HALFF at Millwey Youth Group in Axminster and we're all very excited about the challenge Gelf has set himself to encourage us to eat more sprouts! HALFF already have a regular session at SWITCH Millwey showing the children and teenagers how to whip up a tasty meal. As part of our continuing support, HALFF will be preparing a Christmas meal with the children at their Christmas Party on the 9th December. HALFF needs more funds to continue this support. If you could help please go to http://localgiving.com/charity/halff call HALFF on 01297 631782 or pop into HALFF’s shop on South Street, Axminster
Need a hot lunch or a nutritious ready meal for the family? At No HALFF Measures in South Street 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.
We're lucky enough to be a part of the "Grow your tenner" campaign - a chance to double your donation to HALFF. But hurry, as this incredible fund-boosting initiative will run out once the funding pot is emptied...
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.
Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall is a keen supporter of this charity:
'HALFF is a fantastic charity. They've charged themselves with the crucial task of trying to change the way we as a nation think about our food. It's a big challenge but I think they're taking exactly the right steps to achieve it. By running free cooking and nutrition courses and gardening sessions, they reach out to people from a broad sector of society. And by growing and selling their own fruit and veg - a venture close to my own heart - they demonstrate that producing delicious, seasonal ingredients at home is simple and achievable.
Projects like these not only illustrate that good quality, healthy food can be available to all of us, they also actively build the confidence and food expertise of everyone who takes part in them. For all these reasons I'm delighted to support HALFF's work.' Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, May 2013
