Ruth Boughton is our newest Food Coach. Get to know her below and find out why she chose to work for FoodWise.
What drew you to work for FoodWise?
I enjoy being with people and cooking and feel strongly about getting good quality food to families that are struggling. The way FoodWise courses are taught means that the sessions have a long-term impact and people are also able to stay in touch and get future support.
Tell us a bit about your background?
I started cooking at Crusader camps and then became a caterer at Saint Saviours in Guildford. I combine my work with FoodWise with my own gardening business and really enjoy seeing the journey of food from garden to plate.
What have you enjoyed most so far?
I love seeing the impact the courses have on people who come in with no experience or confidence. To see the thrill on people’s faces when they’ve cooked something and their family has said how much they have enjoyed it is wonderful. One client has commented ‘Why do we need takeaways when we can cook like this?’ That was a great result.
What is your favourite meal?
I love being creative with food and throwing a meal together from what’s in the fridge. As well as that I love a good cheeseboard with a glass of wine!
