I’m one of those peo­ple who goes gro­cery shop­ping three or four times a week. I should get into the habit of do­ing one big shop a week to save money, but I’m not much of a plan­ner when it comes to meals and I don’t like see­ing food go to waste.

In say­ing that, it still hap­pens. There goes half-a-bag of wilted let­tuce, an over-ripe to­mato, a floppy cu­cum­ber and a pot of yo­ghurt so old the ex­piry date has faded. I try to use what’s in the fridge, but it doesn’t al­ways hap­pen.

Many peo­ple don’t get that lux­ury. They buy what they need and they use what they have.

Some peo­ple can’t even do that, and that’s where char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion John’s Kitchen is lit­er­ally a life­saver.

They’re help­ing so many peo­ple they needed some­one to take the pres­sure of ex­ist­ing vol­un­teers. Chef Richard Mc­Don­ald is the new kitchen su­per­vi­sor, and it’s his job to feed hun­dreds of peo­ple mak­ing use of in­gre­di­ents do­nated to the kitchen (page 1,3). How lucky those of us are that can throw away food when some of us rely on it to live.
