Seasonal food tips, competitions and a cook along!

This month we are focusing on food!

Our food and how it’s grown and produced can make a big difference to the environment. This month we’ll be sharing tips and inspiration on our social media channels to help you eat in a way that’s good for you and the planet. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to stay updated and find out more.

We'll be partnering up with the Veg People, chefs from Cracking Good Food and putting a spotlight on Manchester's community heroes to help you get eating more seasonal and locally grown fruit and veg. Here's how you can get involved!

Join our seasonal cook along live!

Chef Ngwafu from Cracking Good Food will be hosting a seasonal cook along on Monday 23rd August on our Instagram page. She'll be showing us how to make a delicious jollof rice, full of seasonal veggies, as well as a seasonal salad. Come cooking with us! Check out the recipe here to get your ingredients ready.

Cooking competition!

Starting on Friday 20th August - it's challenge time. Cook a seasonal dish over the week and share a snap with us (by email or on our social media channels @InOurNaturemcr) to be in with a chance of winning two places at Cracking Good Food Urban Foraging Adventure and an 'Eat It All' Zero Waste cook book.
