About

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.
