Objectives

For young people to interact with Caribbean elders so they could understand, learn from and apply some of the great values around home cooked food, eating and socialising together. It was also about interacting with different people from different cultures.

The activity

Younger people from the Brathay Trust and Princess Trust came to the Mary Seacole Court (a day centre for the elderly). The younger people got involved with cooking tasks, playing games like dominoes and chatting to the older people. After the food was prepared both generations enjoyed their meal together.
