Food Workshops for 800th Party Organisers

Grub’s up for birthday

Enjoy yourself the healthy way – that’s the message for Liverpool’s 800th birthday street parties.

Hundreds of community celebrations are taking place across the city on August 27, and the Liverpool Culture Company is encouraging people to consider the nutritional value of the food they’re serving up.

To aid preparations, the Culture Company has organised special food workshops to get party organisers in a healthy frame of mind. The first workshop takes place at Toxteth Library on Thursday, August 2, followed by a second at Childwall Library on Wednesday, August 8.

Nutritional Therapist Helen Turner will be leading the sessions. She said: “Contrary to what many people think, parties and good health can go together hand in hand. In fact, eating the right food increases energy levels and enables us to have even more fun.
