OUR MUSIC OUR FOOD
-Food and music have always been close to me and Adrian Shephard in the early days of radio when we fell on hard times and the mercy of the Local Salvation Army and later my work in a food co op as a trainee cook.
The second part of the show features a mix by D j Smart Monkey as a showcase taster for the Compilation album “Our music’ Compiled for the Our Kitchen project whose practice is to support children and families in Thanet England where its estimated up to a quarter of all families are unable to adequately feed themselves. Various Artists submitted tracks as a download album to highlight and support the project .
Ben Miller-‘ is interviewed on the show ;
“The Our Kitchen project has been going for about 4 years with summer kitchens during school summer holidays, volunteers taking over the school kitchens. It sits alongside the 3 different shops which sell food to people who are struggling through food poverty.
It’s good healthy food at about 40 percent of what it would cost at a supermarket. It started at the same time as the UK governments `Universal credit scheme’
Differing from food banks, as an analogy Ben says which are an “accident and emergency service” we are more like a Gp (doctor’s service ).
“I’m not knocking food banks but they often contain stuff not necessary, like things you can put together to make a good meal ? We also provide good food recipe cards alongside meal kits, there’s the recipes we put out, such as our butter bean soup recipe which you can put together.
We are helping people all the time just because people are working doesn’t mean they are not in poverty with “zero hour contracts ‘
The fact that can come in and shop and just do a normal shop and can leave with dignity
The Our music fundraiser was one I wanted TO keep in line with Our kitchen in that it is ‘all inclusive”This is ours ‘.
When I started I was looking at different opportunities to raise more funds and awareness. We live in a different time with digital downloads. I wouldn’t have been able to do this 10 years ago
