People make their food go further in Staffordshire

Residents from Stafford and Stone have sharpened their culinary skills by learning how they can eat healthier for less.

People took part in a number of cookery workshops across the borough that taught them how to eat more healthily on a budget.

During the borough council organised workshops participants were shown how leftover chicken from a roast can be turned into a pie or soup, as well as other cost saving ideas. 

People were also shown how to store food safely and keep their kitchens hygienic.

The workshops were set up following the launch of an online cook book ‘Healthy Eating on a Budget’ by the council. The cook book demonstrates how anyone can eat healthy with quick and easy recipes that don’t cost a fortune.

Over 20 people attended the courses, which were held at the Frank Jordan Centre in Stone, Highfields Signpost Centre and Holmcroft Community Centre, Stafford.
