Food For Life

5-lesson cookery course

Food plays a vital role in the lives of people living with HIV and over two years we aim to increase the cooking skills and nutritional knowledge of people living with HIV by delivering high quality 5-session courses.  Delivered by a qualified chef and nutritionist, the courses give the participants the opportunity to cook a range of well-balanced, nutritious recipes using accessible and low-cost ingredients.  The course includes information on shopping and eating well on a Budget, tips and tricks for getting the most out of your food budget; explaining food labels to make sure everyone can get the best nutrition from what they can buy; talking about common symptoms and side-effects of the medication that affect daily life, and ways in which certain foods and food groups can help.  George House Trust worked in partnership with The Food Chain to develop the course.
