With many families struggling with the rising living costs and having to choose between heating and eating – Inspire Youth Zone has developed a social action campaign in partnership with Cadent Gas. Our young people to help build awareness across the UK of the cost-saving and health benefits of slow cooking.
Each month Inspire partnered up with a ‘business food partner’ to help us find the nation’s favorite slow cooker recipe. When it comes to cooking your favourite dishes, it doesn’t get much better than using a slow cooker. A slow cooker saves you time, it’s easy to use and most importantly slow cookers are an energy-efficient way to cook meals for you and your family!
Inspire asked each partner to choose their chosen slow-cooker recipe and provide the young people from the youth zone with the ingredients. In return, they kindly donated the prepared meal to Chorley Help the Homeless. This fantastic project has had an incredible reach of over 10,000 people across the UK (enough people to fill Old Trafford!)
The project has been lucky enough to have partnered with businesses such as Chorley Building Society, Roccia, AO.com, Chorley Group, ESG Global, Markem Imaje, Chorley Help the Homeless, and Places for People.
