We Are FoodPioneers Slow Cooker Appeal

Posted on 19 February 2021

Please support We Are FoodPioneers new One Pot Project and help them to raise the £1,000 they need to buy and distribute slow cookers for those most in need.

Many people are struggling financially this year and feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Referrals to local Food Banks have increased, more people are out of work and experiencing reduced incomes leading to job insecurity and fuel poverty that is set to increase. For many, this is a real and everyday challenge and for some of us, this year will be truly dire. Many individuals and families are eating cold food or meals that require only a kettle or a microwave, not out of choice, but out of necessity.

Slow cookers are a great solution to create healthy, hearty meals and whilst at the same time helping to tackle fuel poverty. Slow cookers typically use the same amount of electricity as a standard light bulb and much less than a hob, kettle, microwave or cooker, which of course not everyone has access to. A wide variety of foods can be cooked in a slow cooker, including one-pot meals, soups, stews and casseroles. Ingredients used to make the best slow cooker meals are inexpensive and cheaper cuts of meat can be made into delicious nutritious meals. The process of creating hot food is simple and meals can be stretched beyond a day and offer a sustainable way of cooking and eating well. They can be used for a whole variety of foods, much better than just pot noodles and a kettle.

What can we do to help?

We Are FoodPioneers are calling on friends, neighbours and the local community to help and support. Your donation will buy slow cookers to distribute to our neighbours across Worthing & Adur in partnership with our friends at Worthing Homes and the local Food Banks, ensuring we reach people who can benefit the most. We will provide a basic slow cooker to vulnerable families and individuals, allowing them to prepare nutritious winter warmer meals at low cost.

As well as providing slow cookers, we’ll include recipes, a simple how to guide and invite people, including yourselves, to share recipes, creations and inspiration with each other.

SICK OF THE COST OF LIVING CRISIS? SICK ABOUT THE CLIMATE CRISIS? THEY ARE ONE CRISIS.

Today we are on the streets in London, prayerfully blocking the road outside parliament. We are taking a stand against a government who seems set on making life easier for millionaires & making the rest of us suffer.

If we don't act - who will?

Timeline photosThe 11th Assembly of The @worldcouncilofchurches in Karlsruhe, #Germany has called for support for #ecocidelaw as a new and strengthened form of ecological accountability.

The World Council of Churches is the world’s largest ecumenical organisation and the Assembly is held every eight years. The statement calls for metanoia; a transformative change of heart and mind. It determines that the narrow anthropocentric understanding of our relationship with Creation must be revised to a whole of life understanding.

Theres also drinks and cake available while you wait.

Taking bookings now for the next one on Saturday October 29th.

I'm sure it's staring me in the face, but how do I book please? 🤔

Don't forget to mention how good the coffee and cakes are 😋 ☕

Due to some pretty fierce winds in the past week, the runner beans have taken a bit of a hammering so enter the rescue team!

Theyre still producing loads though...
