‘This is an exciting new development for Pilton Community Health Project. The idea came out of our community research which identified the barriers to healthy eating. The research showed that local people want to develop skills in all forms of eating healthy, cooking and bread making”, said Lisa Arnott, coordinator of the Community Healthy Lifestyles Project at PCHP. “As a result of the PCHP research we have seen the development of the Yummy Cookbook, the Yummy Food Festival and now the ‘Use Your Loaf’ project. This new project will teach local people how to make some fantastic bread and encourage people to eat more healthily.”
Sammy Dick, one of the women involved in planning the Yummy Food Festival, said: ”The Yummy Food Festival 2012 was really exciting and there was such positive a response that we are planning to repeat it 2013. The Use Your Loaf project is a great idea and we will be learning how to make a simple loaf and planning for the next food festival.’
Use Your Loaf will be held at North Edinburgh Arts Centre, starting on Tuesday 28 August, 10am-12.30 and runs for ten weeks. There are also limited childcare places available.
