Cornwallis Court residents celebrate World Food Day and National Curry Week

27 October 2017

Residents at Cornwallis Court in Bury St Edmunds celebrated two national awareness events with foodie activities.

In the lead up to World Food Day (16 Oct) and National Curry Week (9-15 Oct), residents did some active gardening and growing vegetables, such as papaya, avocado and chilli. Chilli, the most popular spice in the world, is said to help prevent heart attacks and strokes, as well as makes curry dishes spicy and tasty, so residents benefitted from their home grown veg.

During National Curry Week, the Home's kitchen team cooked up a curry feast for residents to experience a taste of the Indian culture.

Activities Coordinator Alex Winter said: "At Cornwallis Court, our residents really enjoy getting involved in different campaigns and cultural events. It brings a lot of fun at the Home and we encourage residents to try new activities. Following the success of our foodie themed days, we are already looking forward to Thanksgiving and Apple Day."
