Cooking Good by Health Works
Cooking Good is a healthy eating project led by Health-Works and are funded by Public Health England to deliver home cooking experiences to families in the more rural areas of Daventry and South Northants. The two lead consultants from Health Works are Lorraine Hirst and Louisa Gregory who are delivering training to volunteers.
The original project aim was to help families cook straight-forward family meals by providing teaching sessions in small groups in accessible venues or in families' own homes. However, given the current Coronavirus crisis they had to find alternative ways to reach the families with ideas and tools to help them cook more nutritious meals on a budget. By providing useful cooking videos and online easy-to-cook recipes, they aim to bring families together around the simple activity of cooking and eating good food.
