River Cottage HQ Apprentice to run Bristol 10K for HALFF
"Freyja Davis, an apprentice at River Cottage HQ, will be running 10 kms on 11th May in order to raise funds for local charity Heath and Local Food for Families. She said " HALFF is addressing an issue very close to my heart. As a small charity, I really hope to help to raise awareness of all the amazing work it is doing. Food is crucial to all of us and one of the things that I really love about HALFF is that they include all aspects of food, not just cooking and nutrition, but also the social aspect. It is quite difficult to fit training for the run around my changing shifts at River Cottage, but raising money for such a good cause is real motivation for me."

HALFF re-launches its Heart Hub to help people with or at risk of heart disease, high blood pressure or stroke, and people with type 2 diabetes and expands it to include cooking demonstrations in Seaton too!
Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall is a keen supporter of this charity:
‘HALFF is a fantastic charity. They’ve charged themselves with the crucial task of trying to change the way we as a nation think about our food. It’s a big challenge but I think they’re taking exactly the right steps to achieve it. By running free cooking and nutrition courses and gardening sessions, they reach out to people from a broad sector of society. And by growing and selling their own fruit and veg - a venture close to my own heart - they demonstrate that producing delicious, seasonal ingredients at home is simple and achievable. Projects like these not only illustrate that good quality, healthy food can be available to all of us, they also actively build the confidence and food expertise of everyone who takes part in them. For all these reasons I’m delighted to support HALFF’s work.’
