#CommunityProfile with Sheila and Dolores - Food! -- @Sheila555 @deloreswilliam @z1radio

Every week Delores William and Sheila Smith talk to people making a difference in London on ZoneOneRadio.

This week they look at food banks, food poverty, and food recycling.

Interns Katherine and Emilia go to Bromley-by-Bow to visit the Pie in the Sky Cafe run by the non-profit Food Cycle and see how the cafe reduces food waste.

The number of people using food banks tripled in the last year, and this week Dolores talks to Ray Woolford of We Care Food Bank in Deptford and listens to the story of a woman who makes use of the food bank for herself and her daughter.

Dolores teaches us how to make a delicious pumpkin pie that she and Sheila enjoy!  Find the recipe at
