The Thrifty Cook.

A fundraising cookbook supporting students facing financial hardship

What is The Thrifty Cook?

As part of Kent Giving Week, we have created a cookbook jam-packed with recipes, all for under £5 per serving. We have had some fantastic contributions from the likes of Joe Wicks, Ainsley Harriott, local chefs, staff, alumni and students.

Priced at £5, pre-orders for The Thrifty Cook are now live (available for collection on campus from Monday 20 March). You will also be able to buy a copy on campus during Kent Giving Week at the following locations: 

Mandela Building Reception

Kent Clothing (Park Wood)

Any of the Kent Giving Week events 

Even better, there’s the option to buy one and donate it directly to a student facing hardship; all donated cookbooks will be passed to the student foodbank for distribution and you will receive a digital copy of the cookbook via email.

100% of proceeds will go towards providing nutritious meals to students who need it most.
