British School Offers Cooking Classes For Grandfathers
An innovative volunteer-driven cooking program at Backwell in New Somerset teaches older men in Britain how to survive alone in their later years.
In a remarkable effort to equip aging men with basic knowledge and skills in cooking, the Backwell School in New Somerset, England, has kickstarted an intergenerational program to teach men in their sixties or seventies how to use an oven, chop vegetables, sift flour, and making casseroles and cakes, among many other kitchen essentials. Nine men attend the cooking classes spearheaded by the school’s community arts program in conjunction with charity Age UK Somerset, and are assisted by three volunteer school students.
