Save Food Save Money

A Save Food Save Money session was held at Paddock Village Hall on November 12th, giving attendees ideas on how to produce cheap, healthy family meals. The group also found out about basic food safety and went away with fridge thermometers to ensure their food was being stored correctly. The group made a 2-course meal, which fed the whole group, for less than £3!  The workshop was a joint venture between Kirklees Council, Sainsburys supermarket, Community Learning Works and Paddock Community Trust.IMG-20181115-WA0004
