Pontefract residents cook up a storm – on a budget!

Published 6 June 2014

Residents in Pontefract get tips on how to cook healthily on a budget after attending a ‘cooking on a budget course’.

WDH tenants from the Horsefair area, were invited to attend weekly food workshops to increase their knowledge about cooking healthy whilst sticking to a budget.

South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust have organised weekly sessions for people where they can pick up recipes which are based on 4 people sharing at a cost of under £5 per meal.

Natalie Guy, WDH Tenant Involvement Officer said: “It’s great that we can offer this workshop to the local community. Not only does it promote healthy eating, it also encourages social networking too.”

Ian Scott, 40, local resident who has been attending the workshops said: “I have enjoyed learning how to cook healthily and it’s great that you can still stick to a budget.”

Sophie Ross-Smith, NHS Community Food and Health Worker said: “The courses are aimed to try and encourage people to eat healthy and understand that it doesn’t have to cost a lot to do so. We are trying to get people to reduce wastage and so cooking that bit extra and freezing batches can go a long way and save people a lot of time.”

The course is currently running Wednesday 1 pm to 3 pm and is open to new people. If you would like to attend the weekly sessions please contact Natalie Guy, WDH Tenant Involvement Officer on 01977 788112.
