Campaign Overview

We’re bringing our campaign to Inverclyde, one of the most beautiful areas in Scotland but also one of the worst areas for poverty and life expectancy. For our Inverclyde campaign, we will be travelling around the area, highlighting initiatives aiming to tackle poverty and obesity, as well as giving you more healthy eating and exercise tips. 

We’ll be creating a new series of £5 Challenge cooking videos in partnership with the Healthy Living Award to show you really cheap and easy recipes you can make with ingredients from your local convenience store, as well as some of Inverclyde Council’s most popular recipes from their school meals service! 

We’ll also be teaching secondary school pupils in the area how to make our recipes, promoting healthy eating!
