Reconnecting people with their food

Fighting Food Waste & Having Impact 

Hi, Puneeta here!

In 2020, I released the How to SHOP YOUR PANTRY eBook. What started out as a pantry challenge during the early months of the pandemic rapidly became a 48-page collection of recipes and pantry tips to help add flavour to everyday life.

Through the eBook, I wanted to help readers cook more at home, reduce what we throw away and support the community, causes very close to my heart. 

I am beyond delighted to report that so far we have donated $2400  to Second Harvest, Canada’s foremost food rescue organization.  

If you missed out on buying your copy of How to SHOP YOUR PANTRY, look out for the 2nd edition coming up soon.  Sign up for the newsletter below so you stay in touch. 

With Warm Regards,
