Townsend 'Waste Not Want Not Project'

'Waste not want not', was the rallying cry of the 40s and 50s when food was rationed and every bit of food was used, nothing was thrown away and families were forced to make the most of the meagre food rations available.

The 'Waste not want not' project will re-visit some of the inexpensive yet nutritional meals produced during and just after the second war when food rationing made families make the most of food which was in short supply.

Every last food item was used in ingenious ways to make items such Dishes such as Lord Woolton Pie, Mock Goose, Corn Beef Hash and Tatty Pot but we probably miss out Whale-meat burgers and Sheep's Head broth.

The project will demonstrate how the national diet was much better than today in times when food is plentiful and many younger families often throw 30% of our food away, was not possible on a ration of 2oz of butter and 3 eggs a week.

There are three more workshops taking place in August, if you are interested and would like more information please email
