Local Bristol Community initiatives:

Eat Share Love – ’91 Ways’ fundraising cook book

Eat, Share, Love is a unique collection of recipes from Bristol’s 91 language communities, celebrating the city’s diversity by giving voice to Bristol home cooks who share their heartfelt and intimate personal stories behind their favourite dishes.

Food author and campaigner Kalpna Woolf founded 91Ways to Build A Global City in 2015 to break down barriers and unite Bristol’s communities using the power of food. All proceeds from the book will go to the 91Ways charity.
