Good Food Brings Generations Together

06 December 2019

RESIDENTS at Cook Court, Clanmil Housing's independent living scheme in Newtownards, alongside a group of young people from Newtownards, Include Youth Give and Take, met over three sessions sharing stories and experiences over food, with chat and a few gruelling questions.





The project supported by Food for Life Get Together and Linking Generations Northern Ireland, provided an opportunity for people of different ages and backgrounds a chance to get to know each other while sharing real, healthy food.

Nicola Thompson, Senior Youth Worker at Include Youth said, "This fantastic funding has created connections and conversations across generations that wouldn't normally work together. Everyone irrespective of age embraced the sessions, with talk of future working together".

Two young people from Include Youth, Louis and Taylor, "It was good to meet with different generations and talk about being vegan and what that means, while sharing a meal with everyone".

Gillian Elder, scheme coordinator for Cook Court said, "It's been a great experience for all, understanding that each individual is unique and recognizing our individual tastes in food".

William Miskelly who lives at Cook Court really enjoyed the sessions, "It has been a real pleasure to meet this group of young people and have the opportunity to sit down over a meal and get to know them better. Good food is one thing that we all appreciate, regardless of how old or young we are, but we've been finding out that it's not the only interest we share. There's been no shortage of craic".
