Member Courses

As well as offering food to our members, the Community Grocery is also here to support you. One of the ways we’ll be doing this is through free member courses and you can find out more about the courses that are coming below.

With Greater Manchester having just moved to Tier 4 the start of the courses has been delayed slightly, but they’ll all be starting up as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can find out more about the courses you’re interested in and reserve your place(s) on the course(s) by clicking the link below.
