Sue Mahon is a volunteer chef at Landworks, a charity that provides a supported route back into the community for current and ex-prisoners. Sue teaches trainees to cook, budget and solve problems as they make lunch for up to 15 people with a £20 budget.
Her 1:1 lessons help trainees to develop healthy, economical meal plans and shopping skills. Each of the dishes Sue designs can be affordably repeated by trainees, as they might be feeding a family while dependent on benefits or a low income on their release from prison.
Sue was nominated as Cook of the Year in the 2017 Food and Farming Awards.
