Two UK businesses have donated slow cookers to their local food banks to help with the cost of living crisis.
Tell me more.
Throughout December, each business donated slow cookers to the areas of Beeston, Bulwell, Bestwood, Clifton and Long Eaton food banks.
Great! But why slow cookers?
Slow cookers are incredibly energy efficient and use significantly less electricity than your standard oven or stove.
In this time of energy crisis, where gas and electricity are incredibly expensive, food banks can still afford to cook hot, delicious meals for as many people as possible.
If you can comfortably afford to do so, consider donating to your local food bank during this cost-of-living crisis, to make sure nobody goes without.
