Muslims Launch Campaign to Help Combat Food Poverty This Christmas

Meals cost from 9p a serving

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK has launched a ‘Cheap & Easy Cooking’ campaign today to help tackle food poverty.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a serious impact on the UK and many are struggling to make ends meet. In addition to supporting food banks, helping distribute school meals, providing cooked food for frontline staff and helping neighbours, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community wants to help combat food poverty through its latest campaign.

The campaign shares cost saving and easy to cook recipes, encouraging people to cook at home rather than buying costly ready meals. The guide includes:

*   How to shop smart and save money
*   Easy chicken korma; keema aloo and chickpeas aloo
*   No chop, no prep lentils
*   Kebab burgers and bap

It features a recipe booklet and short video tutorials on how to make these dishes quickly, easily and cheaply – with some meals costing as little as nine pence per serving. Starter packs for the recipes are also being donated to food banks to help the neediest.

The National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK, Rafiq Hayat said:

“At an unprecedented time in the history of our nation, our lives have been severely disrupted by COVID-19, particularly for the most vulnerable in our communities. As Muslims, service to humanity is our duty, and given the challenge of food poverty, the campaign aims to make tasty and healthy meals more accessible.”
