Top Tip

I think there are two different types of food poverty, there is not having enough money to buy food but there is also a poverty of food education. People don’t know how to cook basic meals from scratch for themselves and their families. They don’t know how to make a pasta sauce or that it’s cheaper to make it yourself, so end up buying it from the supermarket instead.
