Encouraging Healthy Eating in Young People and Building Community Cohesion
Community Foundation for Greater Manchester
The Barr Hill Residents Association were awarded £2107.63 from the Community Foundation's Grassroots Grant fund.
Barr Hill Residents Association was established in 2006 with the aims of improving and developing areas within the local community. They applied for funding from the Community Foundation to help plan and run a project that was organised between two gated alleyways that originally formed the Association.
The grant they received went towards the running costs of maintaining an alleyway with organic vegetation. They also encouraged more residents to become involved with the project. According to the group three out of four Salford children are obese, meaning it is important to educate them about healthy foods.
This project has benefited over 95 people within the local community and the group plan on continuing in this area of work.
