The Upsetting Reality Of Modern Day Poverty

A very powerful piece....

This is a post about a subject very close to home.  My home.  It is about politicians who wouldn't know poverty if it chewed on their overpaid arses.

It's about, in part, Jamie Oliver.....

Fw: Free Low-cost Recipe Booklets

Blackpool Food Partnership is offering groups in Lancashire free low-cost recipe booklets to go with any food parcels they distribute and to give to people engaged in 'cook and eat' programmes. These are not meant for people with access to fresh vegetables and fruit, as these are of course the ideal, but for people who may only have access to tinned and dried food through food parcels.

These recipe booklets have been found to be invaluable in building cooking skills and enabling people to eat healthy food at a very low cost.

As the booklets are so beneficial we have been commissioned to distribute them across Lancashire to reach people experiencing food poverty.

The booklet, with photo illustrations of the finished dishes, is carefully designed for people who may only have access to dried and tinned food, no measuring equipment and little additional food in the pantry. We attach small bags of spices according to the spices needed in the recipes.

For more information ring Nina Parker on 0798 9393232
