10 August Meeting

  • Jilly Alexander believes that many people suffer poor health as a result of poor diet. And the reason we eat poorly is a lack of cooking skills. Kaikohe is an area with fertile soil where growing food is relatively easy. But many people choose not to do that because they don't know how to cook what comes out of the ground.

  • Jilly, a pharmacist at Orr's Unichem Pharmacy, is keen to help Kaikohe residents to learn cooking skills. She has advertised free cooking classes and hopes to get started in late September at the Kaikohe Rugby Club which is providing her with free use of its kitchen. She has got support from some local businesses, including Countdown Kaikohe which is donating ingredients.

  • Jilly says her classes will focus on basic but nutritious meals that are easy to make. She hopes that if people know how to cook vegetables that will no longer bypass greens in the supermarket and may also grow their own.

  • Jilly's initiative is a fantastic community project that Kaikohe Rotary is pleased to support.
