In the Belville kitchen, we offer a variety of cooking experiences with our qualified community chefs.

Our largely plant-based recipes focus on balanced nutrition, and we can accommodate a wide range of specialized dietary needs such as gluten and lactose intolerance. We can also provide advice on cooking for diabetes management, heart disease and brain health.

We are dedicated to the reduction of food waste and promote energy efficient cooking by sharing best practice and providing participants with a chance to practice their kitchen skills.

Small class size and dedicated support staff both help two ensure that these experiences are enjoyable. Our cooking experiences are suitable for all skill levels, from beginner to expert, and are accessible to all.

Alongside our weekly Soup and a Blether, we regularly run one-off and seasonal workshops, demonstrations and community meals.

Contact us or have a look at our Facebook page to find out about our current cookery events.


As part of our ongoing legacy from our Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) projects in previous years, Belville collects supermarket excess and distributes it to the community through our outdoor larders, food parcels, and weekly food-share stalls.

Some of the excess is used to make the delicious soups we serve at our Soup and a Blether every week.

If you are having difficulties with your household food budget, contact us to see how we can assist you.
