Five hundred pounds has been awarded to the Foodylicious Fraserburgh initiative from the Scotmid Co-operative Society Community Grant Fund.

Foodylicious Fraserburgh is a new initiative being launched to support the local community to achieve a healthier lifestyle with a particular focus on healthy eating. In recent years it has been shown that next to smoking, poor diet is the most significant reason for poor health in Scotland.

The project has introduced a new scheme that will encourage and support improved cooking skills within the family home, along with promoting a healthier balanced diet.

Local retailers Scotmid, who have contributed a number of vouchers to the scheme, have given their support. Local Morning Noon and Night Manager, Velinda Barclay said, “It’s always a pleasure to be able to make a real difference in our community where we can. In the case of Fraserburgh Development Trust, this is a project that gets right to the heart of the community by tackling barriers to a healthy lifestyle. Scotmid assists many Scottish health projects, the length and breadth of the country and we will continue to do so. I’m delighted that Scotmid could help out with something so worthwhile in Fraserburgh.”

Andrew Mackie, Community Health Development Officer added: “This scheme will benefit families and individuals to become aware of the health benefits and importance of healthy balanced diets.”
