We held an action-packed session in Bury yesterday making dhal, zesty raita and rice on top of a dressed spinach salad for over 70 people attending the Brighter Futures service user community event funded by Bury City Council. Kim had procured produce from Fareshare at Smithfield Market to demonstrate how intercepted food destined for landfill still has plenty of life and freshness in it - enough to serve so many people a nutritious and flavoursome lunch!
Some attendees lent a hand to chop, peel and slice the vegetables while others watched and passed around the fresh herbs (coriander and mint) and spices to familiarise themselves with the fragrances, and Kim expanded on their uses and health benefits. All were captivated by the messages Kim shared about preserving food, shopping economically and reducing waste. The event's attendees enjoyed the dish so much and were delighted when they each received a Cracking Good Food Kit Bag containing healthy eating information leaflets along with recipe sheets and ingredients to make the dish again later in the week!
