Many Myplace Centres have cafés which are open to the public. In Bath for example, the Southside Youth Centre runs the "Hub Grub Community Cafe" which has proved very successful in engaging people from the local estate in the work of the Centre. Regular “Healthy Cooking Projects” help young parents to provide a balanced diet for their children whilst young people engage in healthy eating and health and lifestyles projects.
Other Myplace Centres use food and drink in different ways to support the personal and social development of young people. The Fairplay Centre, part of Chesterfield Myplace, helps disabled young people to understand about food and the importance of a good diet by helping them to grow fruit and vegetables in a new garden/allotment space and by cooking healthy food using ingredients that the young people have helped to grow.
