Health and Local Food for Families (HALFF) is relaunching its free cookery demonstrations for people who care for others, next month.

Its team of experts will offer advice on how to prepare meals for people with a variety of medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, learning difficulties and dementia.

HALFF’s monthly demonstrations, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, help people to learn more about healthy cooking and nutrition, as well as providing support and advice for people looking after those with specific health conditions.

People unable to make it to the session can register with HALFF to receive a free fortnightly newsletter via email or post, giving recipes, tips and advice on cooking for their loved ones.

The first session is on Monday, July 4, at the Masonic Hall, in South Street, Axminster, from 10.30am to 12.30pm. Further sessions will run at the same time and place on August 1, September 5, October 3, November 7 and December 5.
