Today is the second day of Do The Math, a challenge hosted by The Stop community food center. For one week, ten high profile Torontonians will pick up a standard food bank hamper from The Stop, living exclusively off of the contents for as long as they can. A typical food hamper is meant to last about three to four days, but many people stretch this out to last anywhere from seven to ten days.
The Stop Community Food Centre strives to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds community and challenges inequality.
Their cookbook Good Food For All – based on recipes developed in The Stop’s community kitchens with Joshna Maharaj—is a celebration of fresh, seasonal food and a rallying cry about the power of food to create healthier communities and challenge inequalities.
With more than 80 recipes divided into the four seasons, Good Food for All makes healthy, local, seasonal eating both fun and economical, and has been endorsed by good food gurus from Jamie Kennedy to Lucy Waverman, Mark Bittman to Raj Patel. Created entirely on the strength and commitment of volunteers in the book and food industry—with proceeds all going to The Stop’s important work— this inspiring cookbook will be sure to become a kitchen favourite.
