The project funded by Awards for All England will deliver a range of healthy eating and cooking sessions to community members in the semi-rural portion of Leeds. The project will target community members in outer North East Leeds wards.
The project will show people how to produce healthy and nutritious food as a way to combat the current trend towards obesity in children and adults in the community. These workshops will mix healthy eating messages about portion size and food types with practical sessions looking at how to cook simple but healthy options. The project will also produce a small simple cookbook which will be given to all of the participants allowing refer to the information after the sessions.
The Community Matters vision is to provide a sustainable and effective "hub" of learning, support, advice and guidance, enabling local communities and organisations to grow and achieve through the provision of a high quality service.
We do this in a number of ways through our various projects which at the moment concentrate on working with children, young people and families. But not exclusively. We are able to provide training, learning opportunities and business related advice, guidance and information to individuals and organisations.
