Cranleigh Food Bank, which has now been in operation for 4 years is launching a recipe book, which uses foodstuffs given out in the food parcels.
To enable those who use the Food Bank to turn their ‘food parcels’ into appetising and nutritious meals, a bespoke recipe book has been compiled and will be given to those who visit the Food Bank.
In conjunction with this, Surrey County Council’s ‘Family Learning’ will be running a Cooking on a Budget course focussing on meals that can be made using the tinned and packet food that is distributed through the Food Bank.
Delicious, nutritious budget meals such as corned beef hash, fruity cornflake crunch, chickpea and potato curry, easy fish pie, fruity rice pudding and healthy apple muffins will be cooked. A creche will be provided through ‘Surestart’ so that parents can cook in peace.
The Food Bank operates on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Fridays of the month, between 10am and 12 noon and is hosted by Cranleigh Baptist Church.
If you need help, or know of anyone who does, please encourage them to get a voucher from organisations such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, Health Centre, Surestart, Schools, Age UK and bring it along to the Food Bank to exchange for food. On the Fridays that we are open, we also run a drop-in café and welcome anyone for a cup of coffee, cake and a chat in a friendly environment.
