COOKING A RAINBOW | COMMUNITY ALLOTMENTS X FOOD BANKS
This year has been challenging for all of us, but for some, it's been truly devastating. Since the Covid Pandemic started last March, demand for food bank parcels has unfortunately been very high.
This recipe is part of the series “Cooking A Rainbow”, curated by Grow to Give with support from Buckinghamshire Council and Feedback Global. Grow to Give was born out of these difficult times to help those affected and set up local collections of fresh food at allotments in the Aylesbury and High Wycombe area to distribute to people in difficulty. The response has been overwhelming: in 2020 over 1,600 kilos of local fresh food were donated to food banks from 7 allotments.
The "Cooking a Rainbow" recipes are based on family favourites. Simple and quick to make, these recipes are tasty, filling and healthy. Colourful and enticing, you can use fresh, frozen or tinned fruit and veg. They work brilliantly as vegetarian but can also incorporate meat, meat substitute or fish.
A truly collaborative work
