We’ve just finished our first week of the Food and Fun Healthy Holidays Activities at Meanwood Community Centre. We are working with Lemon Balm and the project is funded by Leeds Community Foundation
We’re giving out free recipe kits and craft activities for children to do at home. We’re also videoing our cooking sessions so families can cook along at home.
Here’s our recipe from today: Guacamole and Flatbreadwith Veggie Sticks.
We know avocados aren’t local or very sustainable as they require a lot of water to grow in hot countries like Mexico, Peru or in California. They are also flown in to the UK which makes their carbon footprint very high.
However, we are getting our food from Fare Share and Food Revival who save surplus food from going to waste. In our view, it’s better to eat the avocados rather than let them go to waste. If you do like guacamole then maybe just limit yourselves to avocados as a treat rather than having them every day.
The chives we used came from our gardens so no carbon footprint there!
Happy cooking and happy eating! Do get in touch if you would like to get our recipe kits over the summer holidays.
