this is your goodfood

your letters I only hope that everyone will take note of Joanna Blythman’s article, ‘My charter for a brighter food future’ (Jan), and put it into practice. Me and my husband plan our meals and shop according to our needs. We have a very good local butcher, fishmonger and farm shop, and we bulk-buy meat and fish for the freezer. We keep a list of our freezer food, which includes any meals prepared in advance, and, where possible, buy fruit and veg according to the season – this is easy from our farm shop, as the majority of veg is grown on the farm. All our veg peelings go into the compost bin, and if we have any surplus veg, our dog has a veggie treat. Of course, for us, it’s…

eat cheese to help out

During the lockdowns of 2020, Sam and his partner Shivali missed their leisurely strolls around food markets choosing cheeses. In fact, covid-19 had forced British artisan cheesemakers to pour thousands of litres of milk away, putting many in the industry under threat. Meanwhile, food banks were under pressure. The Trussell Trust, the UK’s biggest food bank network, reported an 89% increase in demand, while the Independent Food Aid Network recorded a 175% jump. At the same time, donations fell, and food banks were forced to function with minimal volunteers. Sam, a recruitment consultant, and journalist Shivali decided to do their bit to help by creating The Cheese Collective ( ‘In the pandemic, cheesemakers – who usually sold their products at events, markets and specialist cheese shops – had to give cheese away…
