Recipe Challenge For Lewisham Foodbank

As you know, we have been contributing to Lewisham Foodbank for some time. Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to being hit with a bill they neither expected nor budgeted for. A simple box of food makes a big difference. The foodbank mainly receives donations of in-date/non-perishable items, which is great. However, if you've never been taught how to cook, trying to pair ingredients to make something tasty can be difficult and frustrating.

So, we thought let’s spice things up a bit and get you guys to help! We are looking for inspiration on how to prepare the basic food parcel items in a simple way, with a creative outcome!


1. Choose from the following ingredients:

  • Pasta/Rice/Noodles

  • Long-Life milk

  • Fruit: in season fruit
