The ThriftyShadesOfBeige Club

$13
per month
Welcome to the ThriftyShadesOfBeige club - a limited number of double sided, premium thickness, A5 recipe cards with full colour photographs. The recipes will be brand new and will not be published on my website for at least two months after being sent to backers, if at all. Featuring brand new recipes and photographs for comfort food classics and reimagined childhood favourites, this idea was born of a Twitter musing one evening and the phenomenal reaction to it made me think I didn't want to wait to get it going! Ah, ADHD, it's a blessing and a curse! The price you see on this tier is a monthly charge, but cards will be posted weekly to UK backers, and monthly to overseas backers. Really looking forward to sharing all my faves with you all!

About Jack Monroe

Hi, I'm Jack Monroe, and I'm a food writer, political commentator, photographer, poet and public speaker. I mainly work in the intersection between food and poverty, whether that's creating recipes on shoestring budgets based on my own experiences as a single mum and former food bank user, or writing about current affairs - whether that's food banks, cooking, access to food, prices, farming, etc. Many years ago when I (accidentally) started out as a food writer, several well-meaning people in television or food or books individually took me aside and said 'Jack, you need to choose between being a food writer or being a political campaigner'. Literally a dozen people said this to me in a short period of time. And I refused - because my food writing came from a place of hunger and poverty in one of the richest economies in the world, and I can't detach cheap recipes from the reasons why people need them in the first place. I'd be a much more palatable (and higher earning!) food writer if I just STFU about inequality and injustice, but that's not my style.

By supporting my Patreon you're giving me space to create the work that really drives me - the free recipes on my website and allllll the admin work that that entails, the charity work I do for free for dozens of food organisations and NGOs tackling poverty, the school talks, the good stuff that makes a difference but doesn't pay the bills. It's not a donation service, there's a reward at every tier, so it's more like a subscription for some goodies as well as exclusive behind the scenes content, musings, sneak peeks at upcoming bits and pieces, and more.

Thanks again - and all my love,

Jack Monroe.
