£43k cooking boost for foster carers and young people

More than £43,000 is being used to help young people and their foster carers improve their diet in the North East.

The funding, raised by HealthImprove through The Health Lottery, will be used to set up healthy food cooking sessions called Let's Get Cooking.

The sessions will teach foster carers and young people how to cook, and the value of a healthy diet.

The classes will run in County Durham, Stockton, Redcar, Middlesbrough, Darlington and Hartlepool.
