A GROUP of homeless youngsters are producing a cheap and healthy meals calendar featuring recipes for cooking on a shoestring.
The recipes include simple dishes such as homemade soup, hamburgers and healthy fruit smoothies, with most of the dishes costing less than £2 to make.
"We are giving our young people the opportunity to learn how to make cheap but exciting meals. We will be launching the calendars before Christmas with a view to selling them in charity shops."
