CFHS development funding awarded to 42 community initiatives

Forty-two voluntary and community groups have this week been allocated funding by CFHS to promote and deliver healthy eating initiatives.

Food and diet play a major role in health and wellbeing, but not everyone can access good food.  People on low incomes and those living in poorer areas have less opportunity to eat a healthy diet and are more likely to experience poor health as a result.  One reason for this is that there might not be affordable healthy food options available where they live.  CFHS, part of NHS Health Scotland, aims to ensure that everyone in Scotland has the opportunity, ability and confidence to access a healthy and acceptable diet for themselves, their families and their communities.  This funding helps to make that happen.

Each of the groups has been allocated between £500 and £2000.  Working in low-income communities across Scotland, they will use the funding to develop a range of practical healthy eating initiatives, including; cookery courses, community gardens and community café projects.
