Penzance – Whole Again Communities CIC
Whole Again Communities (WAC) is a social enterprise which encourages and supports people to learn to cook good quality, affordable food from scratch so that they can embrace healthy eating at home.
Started by Liz Sullivan in 2013 and founded on the stone soup principles, Liz began by running workshops for other women living on a shoestring budget with an interest in healthy eating.
These workshops were such a success that the people who attended went on to help set up the weekly Open House, and in January 2016 we acquired our own venue which enabled us to expand their offer to more workshops, catering for outside events and venue hire. As of the summer of 2022, they were awaiting a rebuild of our original premises, so have temporarily relocated to the Salvation Army on Queen Street in Penzance.
Camelford – The Old Bank
When all three banks closed in Camelford in rural North Cornwall, the landlord of the old NatWest building offered it to a charity for community use & the Old Bank team took up this project.
In 2016, a core group of four volunteers and original trustees did a lot of the work, but they also had help from youth volunteers (thank-you NCS) and donations of advice, labour and materials from many other individuals & organisations.
Recently Camelford Community Larder has joined The Old Bank Camelford. The larder played a vital role in assisting the local community through the Covid-19 lockdowns with emergency food parcels.
As they reopen, they are continuing the run larder events and having local groups and clubs hire the space. They have also received a grant fund from Defra which has allowed them to renovate the kitchen and offer cooking classes which enable people to cook healthy meals on a budget.
Bodmin – Snail Pace Café
Linzi Hanscomb, Nicholas Marcroft and their young family opened Snail’s Pace Cafe & Bike Hire in Wenfordbridge near Bodmin Moor in March 2014 – creating a magical and inspiring ‘off grid’ space in a delightful valley at Wenfordbridge.
Beginning with a love of ecology, permaculture, community development and good food they have created a unique space within and about a recycled shipping container. With a lot of love and hard work they continue to try and offer more an experience than solely a cafe.
Linzi and her team are incredibly passionate about providing high quality, nutritious food and will be working hard to share education around food through games and conversations with the children at the Bodmin Leisure Centre sessions.
Wadebridge – Wood and Green Café
Wood and Green café is a local business based in Wadebridge which provide locally sourced, delicious and nutritious food! Kate was really excited to be a part of this programme and shared her enthusiasm of helping her local community.
Kate and her team have been working hard to create an exciting food offer for our Wadebridge Leisure Centre sessions with a yummy second breakfast and hearty lunch, as well as providing them with exciting food based sessions. The children will learn about growing food, what scrumptious food is in their meals and about what it was like for Katie to work alongside Jamie Oliver!

Launceston – Central Methodist Church
Michael Carpenter and his team were funded over the summer holidays to provide nutritious hot food to the children of Launceston at the local leisure centre.
The people of the Launceston Central Methodist Church were asked to support the Time2Move programme after they were recognised as one of the first organisations in lockdown to support vulnerable people through the difficulties of Covid.
They are a huge part of the Launceston community and will be working hard to deliver their popular food over the Christmas holidays.
Truro – Super Naut
Super Naut is new food start up based outside of Truro and helped deliver hot lunches and food education over the Summer holidays at Truro Leisure Centre.
The food provided ranges from vegetarian burritos to plant-based hot dogs; all of which were very popular with the children!
Super Naut is run by Amy who has a wealth of knowledge in nutritious food, sustainability and a great understanding of what foods kids love! Amy will be supporting Time2Move again for the Christmas holidays and is excited to provide more hot lunches and recipe cards for the children!
