The Oban Times - - NEWS -

COOKS in Lochaber are learn­ing to eat bet­ter and waste less in a se­ries of cook­ery lessons.

Lochaber En­vi­ron­men­tal Group (LEG) and Ac­tion for Chil­dren Scot­land (ACS) in Lochaber are run­ning their fourth block of cook­ing classes at Caol youth cen­tre. The classes aim to teach peo­ple about healthy eat­ing, bud­get­ing, af­ford­able cook­ing and re­duc­ing food waste. The classes make use of fresh in­gre­di­ents and work with busi­ness and part­ners in Lochaber.

Jen Reilly, from ACS, ex­plained: ‘Our first cook­ing class was re­ally suc­cess­ful with ev­ery- one tak­ing part mak­ing var­i­ous tasty dishes. Every­one re­ally en­joyed them­selves, find­ing out how to make nu­tri­tious and de­li­cious meals while on a bud­get. We even had time to taste what we made at the end, which went down par­tic­u­larly well.’

Mem­bers of LEG ex­plained to every­one that fig­ures from Love Food Hate Waste Scot­land show ap­prox­i­mately £ 38 per month is wasted.
