A community kitchen to hold cooking classes, improve wellbeing and combat food waste has opened at Re-imagine in Witchford.
Eco-warrior Ruth Marley welcomed residents, businesses and local dignitaries to the launch event this morning (February 14).
Yummy, savoury treats were shared for people to gain a positive relationship with food.
The community kitchen at the resource centre, just off the A142, will be a place where nutritious home-cooked food is created.
Cookery classes will also be offered to reduce isolation, build community and build confidence and wellbeing.

Ruth said: "There's nothing like mealtimes to help us all get creative and get together with the people we love.
"Saving food does a lot more than just saving money, it helps to slow down global warming and deforestation, so it's good for our communities and our planet."
