As part of our commitment to improving people’s lives, we gifted 100 slow cooker kits during August to customers with school age children who receive funded school meals during term time.
The kits, funded by Edsential, contained a slow cooker, an information guide and ingredients for two meals.
The initiative will help families have a sustainable option to make healthy and nutritious meals, especially during the summer holidays when time can be limited.
Cheryl McCabe, Halton Housing’s Corporate Social Responsibility Officer said: “It’s vital that we support the health and wellbeing of our customers. Initiatives like this are a great example of how we are bringing our corporate vision of improving people’s lives to life. Practical support is very important during these unprecedented times, and these kits will make a real difference to families across the borough.”
Slow cookers are simple to use, require little food preparation time, are cost-effective to run and make nutritious food.
