High praise for the latest slow cooker course from Nourish and Pendleton Together...

Slow cooker courses are being promoted for those experiencing food and fuel poverty because they offer a number of advantages that can help address the challenges of living on a limited budget.

'Great course today.'

So said one of the participants in a recent Slow Cooker course being run by Nourish along with Pendleton Together.

Barry said, "It has been really great to have Judy Hurst cooking again with us. Judy was a 'cook trainer' prior to retiring. Pre-Covid, Judy and her husband, Brian, used to collect ingredients from the local Aldi charity pick up on a Thursday. They would then prepare all the food for our Narrowgate Nightshelter for all the days we didn't have Pret-a-Manger or Greggs. They were an amazing help, so it was fabulous to meet up with her again."

One of the main benefits of slow cookers is that they can help individuals and families prepare healthy, nutritious meals using inexpensive ingredients. Slow cookers use low levels of energy and allow for long cooking times, which makes them ideal for preparing budget-friendly meals such as stews, soups, and casseroles.

In addition to helping individuals and families save money on their grocery bills, slow cookers can also help reduce the cost of energy bills. As slow cookers are designed to cook food over a long period of time at a low temperature, they are much more energy-efficient than traditional ovens and stovetops. This can be particularly important for individuals and families who are struggling to afford their energy bills.

In summary, slow cookers are a cost-effective and energy-efficient way to help individuals and families experiencing food and fuel poverty to prepare healthy, nutritious meals. The courses can provide valuable education, resources, and practical skills that can help individuals and families make the most of their limited resources, and improve their overall health and well-being.
