Potluck is a print and online zine born from a love of food. It shares your stories of cooking, eating and sharing food and all the pleasures and practicalities that come along with it. It’s about togetherness, community and eating delicious things. Our first issue is an 84 page mammoth of a zine, with the theme of "Cooking During Covid" uniting the work. We explore how our routines and experiences with cooking, eating and sharing food were completely turned on their head by the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic through interesting articles, thought-provoking personal writing, delicious recipes and beautiful illustrations and photography. Instead of selling the first issue, we are using it as a thank you gift to raise money for The Trussell Trust, the charity who run the majority of the UK's food banks.
