These menus and ideas have been prepared by the internationally known chef Sanjay Kumar.

Sanjay is a keen supporter of local Foodbanks and demonstrated some of these simple meals at the South West Regional Foodbanks meeting on 20 October 2012. Sanjay is currently Sous-chef at the Headland Hotel, Newquay. Not all boxes contain the exact foods. For example one box may contain ham whilst another will have corned beef. The Truro Foodbank is most grateful to Sanjay for his support and encouragement. Malcolm Henderson Trustee
