Social cooking project

The Social cooking project aims to lower the saturated fat and salt intakes of South Asian families attending a place of worship, to reduce levels of cardiovascular disease in this population.

The project launched in 2011. It has been a great success, lowering the participants' salt intake by 40% and their saturated fat intake by 50%.
