Trussell Trust prohibits Jack Monroe’s risky cookbook

Food banks have banned a renowned chef’s cookbook after it advised low-income individuals to open cans with a knife and hammer if they could not afford a tin opener.

Jack Monroe was slammed by critics and her cookbook Thrify Kitchen was banned from being distributed to food banks by the Trussell Trust after she offered alternatives which food banks brand as dangerous. Techniques included using a hammer and knife to open a tin and using a frozen glass bottles filled with water as a rolling pin
Critics criticized Jack Monroe after she proposed alternatives that food banks labeled as risky, such as using a frozen glass bottle filled with water as a rolling pin.

The author from Southend, Essex, offered in her Thrifty Kitchen cookbook further advice for those in need, such as using a “large clean square of cotton” to drain rice and pasta.

The activist, who claimed that this book is truly for the poor, also suggested gluing ring pulls to handbags to secure sunglasses and stuffing cardboard rolls with dryer lint to create firelighters.

Jack Monroe was criticized by critics, and the Trussell Trust forbade the distribution of her guidebook Thrify Kitchen to food banks because it contains options that food banks consider to be harmful. Using a hammer and knife to open a tin and a frozen glass bottle filled with water as a rolling pin were among the techniques demonstrated.

This isn't the first time the mother-of-one as been criticised online as she once claimed to earn less than workers at McDonald's but as a celebrity speaker she is advertised to cost between £10,000 and £15,000 per event

This is not the first time the mother has been criticized online; she once claimed to make less than McDonald’s employees. However, as a famous speaker, she is promoted to charge between £10,000 and £15,000 each event.

Each copy sold through a network of independent bookstores will be donated to the Trussell Trust, the biggest network of food banks in the United Kingdom.

The organization, which supports 1,200 food banks, stated that it would not distribute the book until modifications were made.

We have no editorial control over the site’s content. The safety of those who utilize food banks is a top issue, and food banks try to provide essentials such as can openers to those in need,’ the organization said in a statement.

The publishers have informed us that action will be taken. The books that will be donated to our food banks will include an addendum addressing any health and safety concerns, and we will not distribute any books in their current condition through our food banks.

The Trussell Trust stated, “We have no editorial oversight over the content.” Priority is given to the safety of those who utilize food banks, and food banks strive to provide items such as can openers to those in need. This comes after Jack, pictured outside 10 Downing Street, vowed to donate one copy of each book sold through a network of independent bookstores to the fund.

The publisher of Monroe’s work, Bluebird, stated that it “amended text in the e-book edition and will do the same with reprints.”The Trussell Trust said: 'We don't have any editorial control of the content.

This is not the first time that her cookbooks have been criticized online; Vegan(ish) was also criticized for its’revolting’ recipes.

The publisher of Monroe’s work, Bluebird, stated that it “amended text in the e-book edition and will do the same with reprints.”

It was stated that Monroe’s frugal advise originated from when she “found herself in extreme food poverty, and necessity demanded creative solutions.”

Monroe stated, “I have a decade-long relationship with the Trussell Trust and am willing to take any necessary steps to ensure that my work is as beneficial as possible.”

Bluebird, Monroe's publisher, said it 'amended text in the  e-book edition and will do the same for reprints'.

Jim McMahon, the shadow secretary of state for environment, food, and rural affairs, supported Monroe and hailed the chef as a “tireless and effective food insecurity activist.”

This criticism came shortly after @AwfullyMolly, a purported NHS employee, attacked Monroe in a blog post.

They accused Monroe of not being forthcoming about the date of her personal financial issues and of having a “constantly shifting back story.”

For instance, the blogger mentions a December 11, 2011 Facebook post by Monroe that purports to invite fellow parents in her area to bring their children over for “coffee, cake, and CBeebies.”

Monroe reflects on her Christmas Day 2011 events in a 2013 Mirror column, writing, ‘I was alone in a freezing cold flat with no television, no gifts, and no food in the fridge since it had been cut off at the mains.’

When similar claims were tweeted by Awfully Molls and others in the summer of 2022, Monroe responded by describing the tweets as “deliberately inflammatory abuse” and describing the “attention-seeking” criticism as “relentless” and “intolerable.”
