Free healthy cooking course for Everton youngsters


Young people from Everton can learn how to cook and eat healthily without busting the budget, thanks to a free initiative funded by Sanctuary Housing.

The L6 Healthy Eating Project will be taking place at the already thriving youth club located at Liverpool 6 Community Centre, running on Thursdays between 4pm and 6pm for eight weeks during September and October.

During the workshops, project leaders will be teaching the youngsters about the price of food and how to identify value for money, as well as how to cook tasty meals with the ingredients they buy.

The aim of the course is to empower the young people to learn how to shop and cook on a budget, skills which are essential to leading independent lives.

Shirley Marshall, operations manager from Liverpool 6 Community Centre, said: “Knowing how to prepare and cook healthy, low-budget dishes is a skill that will help these young people into adulthood.

“They will also be able to share their knowledge with their parents, family and friends in the wider community.”

To book one of the limited places on the free course, residents can contact Shirley Marshall by emailing or by calling 0151 260 1297.

This project is funded by Sanctuary’s Grand Ideas Fund, which is currently accepting applications from community projects benefiting Sanctuary residents and their communities.
