About us

Introduction to Bite

Bite is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of people in Manchester. We work with people to improve their mental wellbeing through Growing and Cooking activities across Manchester.

The food grown at our allotment will be used in our cooking activities and shared with our partner projects such as the wonderful social enterprise Good Mood Food based at The Zion Centre.


About Us

The Bite project works with adults, young people and families who have experienced mental health issues. We address the barriers to positive lifestyle changes around physical activity, healthy eating and social interaction.

Bite is a mentoring project, so we train volunteer mentors to work with people in small groups, or one to one, to support them to overcome their individual barriers.

We do all this through growing and cooking sessions. We currently have two great growing sites at Southern Allotments in Chorlton and North Manchester Hospital. We’re always looking for new partners to work with.

We will also be doing a range of regular and one off cooking activities at sites across Manchester. More information coming soon.


Get involved

Bite has loads of opportunities for you to get involved in growing or cooking food, gaining new skills, meeting new people and spending time in a relaxed, fun environment.
