Situation

Energy Fit Kitchens helps vulnerable people in Cornwall to cook affordable meals and reduce their energy bills. It is an integrated approach to tackling the "heat or eat" dilemma faced by low income households.

Solution

The project provides sociable slow cooker workshops for vulnerable people which focus on saving energy in the kitchen and affordable healthy eating. One to one advice is also offered on individual issues with energy bills, cold homes, damp and mould. At the end of each event all participants benefit from a slow cooker with recipe book to take away, along with a completed checklist for further action and an energy monitor.
