Cooking on a Budget - Healthy Eats 

At the start of 2023, b inspired was awarded funding from the Leicester City Council Anti-Poverty grant programme, to deliver a ‘Cooking on a Budget’ project. Over the course of the project, b inspired ran 4 x four-week courses, with b inspired staff and volunteer ‘Community Cooks’, teaching people how to cook healthy meals at an affordable cost. 
The project was a great success, with 24 Braunstone residents participating across the four courses. On completing the course, participants received a free Slow Cooker, course recipe book and cooking kit, so that they could practice some of the recipes they had learnt at home.
