Residents in Newton Farm, Hereford, have been getting a lesson in healthy eating thanks to a series of group support events, funded by the Prime Foundation.
Newton Farm Community Association (NFCA) offers free services to people living in the Newton Farm area of the City to promote good physical and mental health. The NFCA applied to the Prime Foundation for financial support to expand its healthy lifestyles programme with a series of group activities focused on healthy eating. Held at the Belmont Community Centre, these included sessions for recipe swapping and sharing, tasting new foods and how to prepare simple, affordable meals.
The funding has helped us to encourage more people in Newton Farm to take better care of their physical health and wellbeing, while meeting new people and learning skills which they can use at home in their own kitchens.”
