Hi Karen, I am a Brit living in small town Canada for the last 20+ years. I volunteer for our local foodbank and have been looking for recipes I can give out to our clients with their food allowance for the month. It occurred to me that wartime recipes might work quite well. We are able to give out very little meat (1lb. hamburger only) or fresh vegetables (sometimes potatoes or carrots), most of the food we have available has been donated so is mainly tinned or packaged, we are sometimes lucky to get rice or flour in a small quantity. We do get tinned tuna, soup, and vegetables so I have been putting together a few recipes to which I add small bags of herbs and spices as per the recipe of the month. Not much but at least a little something to spice up their meals.
We do get a lot of older single people living in one room with only a single cooking surface and small number of pots to use, no fridge or just a tiny fridge, so it is not easy for them, as well as a number of families with single parents. Any suggestions you might have would be appreciated. Unfortunately we are not able to provide any hot meals as we are located in a church basement.
