Local families have been enjoying cookery courses run by the Trussell Trust and Red Neighbours in Anfield this summer.

The club’s community programme, Red Neighbours, teamed up again with the Trussell Trust, which is a national charity that aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK, to deliver a summer series of cookery classes for local families in Anfield.

The ‘Eat Well, Spend Less’ cookery sessions show families how to prepare nutritious meals on a budget and provide the skills and ideas to replicate healthy recipes together at home.

Lisa Polhill, a mum of four from Anfield, said: “The sessions have been brilliant, and the staff are so welcoming and lovely.

“It’s great to be able to find an activity that I can take part in with my kids that’s both enjoyable and educational. We are definitely going to replicate some of the healthy recipes we have learnt at home.”

Maria Roberts, also a mum of four from Anfield, said: “It was really good to get involved in the sessions, I attended three out of the four of them with my son.

“It was nice to be able to cook together in a safe environment and learn a few new recipes. I would definitely recommend it to other families.”

Red Neighbours also supports the Trussell Trust by hosting foodbank collections at every Liverpool home game. All food collected is donated to the North Liverpool Foodbank, which is made into three-day emergency food parcels for local people in crisis.
