Objectives of Limerick Food Partnership:
This project is being delivered throughout Limerick City and County.
‘Healthy Food Made Easy’ – Tutor Training
Limerick Food Partnership is currently inviting organisations to identify staff interested in training as Healthy Food Made Easy (HFME) tutors. HFME is an evidence based training and education programme which will build individual and community capacity around food related skills (e.g. menu planning, budget preparation, cooking)
Given current restrictions, it is likely that tutor training will initially be blended learning.
It is intended that training will be delivered in mid to late August, so that some HFME programmes could possibly be rolled out in the September – December period. Again, given the uncertain restrictions, the roll out of the programme will look different to what we had initially envisaged and may include online delivery.
Once a member of staff, interested in completing this training has been identified, the nominated person(s) must complete and return the application form via email no later than July 24th to firstname.lastname@example.org. Returning the form does not guarantee a place on the programme, as we are limited by numbers, however we will endeavour to accommodate as many interested nominees as possible.
