Residents from Wandsworth can benefit from a free six week course in healthy eating, food shopping, budgeting and cooking.

Called ‘How to be a Smart Food Shopper’, the course is designed to help residents to eat healthily regardless of their income, ethnicity or culture.

It will be held in St James Community Centre near Wandsworth Common over six weekly half-day workshops from 1 August (10:30am-1:30pm). 

‘How to be a Smart Food Shopper’ will include help with budgeting, planning healthy meals for families, how to reduce food wastage and understanding food labels.

Participants will also receive a full health check and help with budgeting for their household at the beginning and end of the course.

It is being funded by L&Q Housing Association, which manages more than 2,500 homes in the borough, and run in partnership with health and nutrition education company, Feed Me Good.

The course is open to anyone living in Wandsworth though priority will be given to L&Q residents.

Nureen Glaves, Chef and Nutritionist and Founder of Feed Me Good, said, “We will be providing information and tips on healthy cooking practices and how to get healthy food on a budget. Food and health is a key issue that impacts family and communities, so participants will also be helped to create a personalised plan for them and their family after the workshops have finished.”
