Together We Can Café

Community café

Every week, on Wednesday afternoons between 3:30pm & 5:30pm, we run a Community Café, named Together We Can. This programme is an open door and welcomes anyone from the community who may be going through a difficult period, finds themselves lonely or is in need of a hot meal and a cuppa.

At each session we have helpful and friendly volunteers and staff on hand to answer questions, signpost to the relevant organisations, refer to One Can Trust for food parcels and our other programmes and services. We are also here to be a listening ear and offer our support. Children are more than welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

One client who recently attended a cookery course told us:

“I love routine. Since arriving in High Wycombe, I haven’t been able to structure my life as well as I would have liked. Getting the kids sorted in schools and finding our feet has been a priority but as things are now straightening out, I wanted to focus a bit more on me. I used to love cooking but for many reasons, that was a thing of the past. By attending the course, I regained my confidence in cooking and have learnt so many (new) recipes and tricks that I will now use daily, knowing that my family will have full tummies. A fridge full of homemade food and healthy freezer meals is life changing.”

Cookery course

New cookery course in Feb and March 2024!

Our cookery course allows clients to not only develop and enhance essential life skills but also supports clients with budget friendly recipes that are all based upon their food parcels. The course is free of charge and all equipment and ingredients are included. The recipes are simple, affordable and delicious and each week, clients learn new skills. All abilities are welcome – our course is taught by a trained chef who can support any level of cookery experience.

Our course takes place every Wednesday from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at Hills Café. Booking is essential – please send to foodprogrammes@onecantrust.org.uk.

One can cook
One attendee at a recent supper club told us:

It was a lovely activity to do with my children, I cook for them at home every night and although I love to cook, I have, in recent times, fallen out of love with it due to rising costs, trying to make food last and trying to make meal times fun as it has become slightly laborious. However, by attending the supper club, my children have learnt some skills and a few recipes they can do with my supervision. It’s brought the fun and love back into our kitchen.
