Monroe rose to prominence writing about their struggles to feed their young son with a food budget of ÂŁ10 a week on their blog âCooking on a Bootstrapâ. Since then, Monroe has published cookbooks filled with âausterity recipesâ and has given evidence in Parliament highlighting the impact of the rising cost of basic food items on people living in poverty.
In response to George Eusticeâs suggestion that shoppers could âmanage their household budgetâ by changing the brands they buy, they responded that âsomebody who claims ÂŁ196,000 in expenses in a single year is in no position to tell other people to get cheaper biscuitsâ.
Join us for a very special ThinkIn with Jack, where weâll be talking all about food poverty campaigning, the cost of living crisis, and the inflation of a bag of pasta with their trademark wit and cutting commentary.
