I had grand plans to get involved in this awesome challenge to create an exciting meal for two for £3… I even got a whole turkey breast reduced from £8.50 to 99p so would have been perfect! The challenge ends this Sunday 15th, so if you have time to get involved, or perhaps just vote for the best looking dish, read on and show your support for a great cause this Christmas…
The Trussell Trust is a UK-based food bank charity currently doing some fantastic work in the community to help families who are on the bread line. You can find more information about what they do here: http://www.trusselltrust.org/
The Three Pound Challenge:
Find the full details here: www.buyagift.co.uk/
To show how difficult it is to feed families on limited budgets, the challenge is to prepare a delicious meal for two without exceeding the tricky budget of just £3.
Entrants are asked to go away, purchase their ingredients and prepare their dish without going over the budget. They’ll then need to take a photograph of their modestly priced meal and email it to: threepoundchallenge@Buyagift.
They will upload every picture to their Three Pound Cooking Challenge Facebook album and will pick five finalists after the closing the date, the finalists being those with the photographs with the most Facebook likes.
The finalists will be sent over to the team at The Trussell Trust, and they’ll be given the tough task of choosing the ultimate winner.
The winners will receive:
1. £600 from Buyagift.com to donate to the Trussell Trust so that they can continue their good work within the wider community
2. A relaxing spa day for two
3. A delicious meal for two on London’s famous King’s Road
4. A professional cookery lesson
