A British author will be donating more than 7,000 copies of her cookbook to food banks, thanks to the generosity of GoFundMe donors.
Monroe is no stranger to food insecurity, having lived in what she called extreme poverty for two years and relying on a food bank to tide her over, according to the Guardian.
Her fundraising drive to support the cookbook has had a lovely ripple effect, too.
Her publisher is also handing out 50,000 recipe cards from the book to food banks around the country, and Heinz has donated £10,000 (about $12,600) to the Trussell Trust, a major food bank charity in the United Kingdom, after seeing the fundraising campaign.
