Lynda and Abigail were invited to a training day at Full Crumb Kitchen at FareShare South Yorkshire.
BSY works closely with the amazing team at FareShare to distribute to carers weekly. Statistics state that almost 1 in 8 people in the UK are struggling to afford to eat and upset to learn that 2.7 million tonnes of food is wasted by the food industry every year in the UK.
This is why we were blown away by what the FullCrumb Kitchen are doing, which is teaching local communities and charities how to get the most out of their FareShare deliveries by introducing recipes and creative ways to use their food parcels.
The charming Chris Clyburn looked after us and demonstrated how to get more fruit and vegetables into our everyday cooking (without the arguments from little mouths) He taught us how to create healthy and nutritious base sauces from which we will be able to create a range of different dishes.
The sauces he taught us were curry, tomato and a white sauce. The kitchen smelled incredible, my tummy was rumbling all the way through. We even learned some knife skills – don’t worry I made sure I was far away from Lynda.
Our biggest take away from the day was how we can use this in the future to help carers get the most out of their food bags, BSY can now share this knowledge moving forward
BSY would like to say a huge thank you to Chris and the FareShare team for a fantastic day and for all the work you do.
