What’s for supper?

Bring your community together with great company and delicious food – Natalie Morgan explores the clubs we all want to be part of

I think it is safe to say that our society has become food obsessed. From social media accounts dedicated to uploading photos of incredible dishes, we are literally spoiled for choice when it comes to our next meal. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t appreciate a cracking dinner and fancy cocktail; however, I do know one thing that doesn’t like all these takeaways, brunches, lunches and restaurant banquets and that is my bank balance. Not to mention, regularly ordering takeaway food can be bad for the planet when you consider the energy and miles required to deliver it and the plastic packaging it’s often contained in.

Eating out, ordering in, wine tasting nights and brewery hops can undoubtedly add up to a hefty bill. If you are like me, worrying about the pennies and how your food impacts your ecological footprint, then you may feel that the first thing to take a hit will have to be your social life. It is a sad thought that we may have to turn down social events so we can pay for the boring stuff, however, what if I were you tell you that you could have great food, drinks and fun with friends for next to nothing?

About Be Kind

Hello, When I was little, my parents had a new fridge-freezer delivered. It was a very exciting time because, after a lot of begging, I was allowed to keep the box and I had big plans for it. I became all-consumed with my project – rushing home from school to colour in a panel, pin up a picture or paint numbers on the door. I transformed this brown cardboard cuboid into my own little office, complete with seat, desk and window, and I remember feeling totally satisfied with the finished article. I’d taken something drab and boring and, with a lot of imagination, turned it into something I deemed wonderful. What has my funny little box office got to do with saving the world? Well, this issue we are looking into how with a bit of creativity and ingenuity, we can change things for the better. There are brilliant companies who are taking plastic bottles and making them into swimwear, people that are using their crafty skills to make items for those that really need them, such as blankets for refugees, and a whole bunch of talented social media stars who can help you upcycle the items you no longer love into things you really do. We also look at the incredible benefits of indulging your creative side and how, just like when you were a kid, you should regularly set your imagination free. If you need me, I’ll be decorating my office. Have a great month, Phillipa Editor
