In Freeze You Up! for young people, eight participants cook together for three hours once a week and they each go home with five family meals for the freezer. Like the adult group, they put their music on, catch-up with each other and have a laugh. Importantly though, they help their families to eat more healthily by providing five nutritious, low-fat, home-cooked meals to put into the freezer at home.
In Salford, we’re working with Year 7 pupils at Oasis Academy MediaCityUK and Salford City Council’s Health Improvement Service have kindly supported the project by buying the ingredients for the project and providing valuable staff support at each event. The first event took place 11th April 2013 and ran until 23rd May 2013.
We want Freeze You Up! clubs for adults and young people to spring up all over the country and everything you need to get going is on this site. Use our tried and tested recipes for free and put the ingredients you need straight into an on-line shopping trolley. It couldn’t be easier. The total cost of following the Freeze You Up! model is around £6 per family, per meal, which is great value.
If you start Freeze You Up! in your area, be sure to get in touch to let us know how it’s going and upload your pictures onto our Facebook page. Like us on Facebook too please and we can keep you up to date with new clubs, recipes and ideas.
