Local families attended the launch of a new cookery course run by the Trussell Trust and Red Neighbours on Tuesday.

Red Neighbours has teamed up with the national charity, which aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK, to deliver a series of cookery classes for local families in Anfield.

The 'Eat Well, Spend Less' campaign shows families how to prepare nutritious meals on a budget and provides the skills and ideas to replicate healthy recipes together at home.

The Trussell Trust facilitates a network of foodbanks across the country. At every Liverpool home game, North Liverpool Foodbank has a van at Anfield where both home and away fans are invited to make donations of food and household items.

Vicky Ponsonby, North Liverpool Foodbank coordinator, said: "The classes are a great way to get the family together to have fun and learn new skills.

"We want to engage the local community, children as well as caregivers, and help them to start creating healthy meals from scratch.

"We aim to show them that it is possible to freshly prepare meals on a budget and hopefully they'll go home and have some fun recreating the recipes."
