Des Ashton from Uttlesford Foodbank will be at Saffron Walden Library on King Street on Tuesday, April 19 from 9am to noon to talk about the work of the foodbank, and the money-saving recipes in the book. The pop-up table is on the left as you go inside the door.

An event will also take place in Great Dunmow on May 4. Details will follow.

Des Ashton, Uttlesford Foodbank's Advocacy and Campaign Officer, said: "We felt that with everything that is going on, this type of recipe book would be helpful."
