When it comes to education about the rising cost of living and food, no one knows more than Jack Monroe – and the activist, chef and campaigner has just announced a brand new initiative to get cost- and waste-friendly recipes to their biggest audience yet.

Having spent years living on food banks as a single-parent, Jack is an expert when it comes to feeding families on a tight budget without scrimping on flavour and nutrition. Now, Jack has announced a brand-new cookbook partnership with Twitter which will pass on so many of the tips and tricks they’ve learnt through the years.

What makes this recipe book different? It’s all contained in one single Twitter thread.

With sustainability and the cost of living at the forefront of everyone’s minds this year, education around food waste has never been more important. The #NoWasteCookbook will not only teach Twitter how to make imaginative, delicious food within a small budget and using whatever leftovers are most commonly lurking in the back of people’s fridges, helping to combat the cost of living and the UK’s levels of food waste.

Jack will be taking suggestions from the Twitter-sphere on what leftovers people have in their fridge and designing recipes around the most common thrown away items. So far, the Twitter thread has over 9,000 engagements including lots of users adding their own no-waste recipes to the thread.

The cookbook, out on Friday, will include just one recipe per tweet – that’s a maximum of 280 characters – leaving absolutely no room to waste food, paper, OR words. What’s more, as it will be platformed on Twitter, it’s totally free to all!
