‘Nutritious Nosh for Less Dosh’ featured cookery workshops and guidance on growing your own produce.

There was also a novel opportunity to make fruit smoothies on a specially-adapted bicycle while younger participants enjoyed a fun filled growing activity.

Representatives from forum member organisations including FareShare, Sure Start, North Antrim Community Network, Ballymoney Foodbank, Cook It!, Tesco, Causeway Rural and Urban Network and The Eden Project Communities Big Lunch, were in attendance to provide information on all things food related.

The event was the first to be delivered by the forum which was established earlier this year with the aim of promoting access to affordable healthy food for all.
