What is the Buy One Give One scheme?

When you buy a copy of the Sheffield Family Guide to Smart Sugar Swaps you not only get lots of great low-sugar recipes; you also give another family the chance to make healthier choices. We’ve been working with community groups, schools, libraries and health organisations in Sheffield to identify people who may benefit from a free copy of the book.

It could be that they are novice cooks and want some simple low-sugar ideas, need to reduce their sugar intake for health reasons or couldn’t afford to purchase a cookbook themselves. The people who are nominated are placed on a waiting list and as soon as you buy a book, we gift one directly to them with help from our partners.

Here are some of the organisations we work with:

  • Family centres
  • Start Well and Healthy Early Years
  • Live Lighter and Zest
  • Learn Sheffield
  • Community libraries
  • Darnall Primary Care Centre
  • SOAR community regeneration charity
  • Manor and Castle Development Trust
  • Sheffield maternity services
  • Local schools

How to get your hands on a copy

The Sheffield Family Guide to Smart Sugar Swaps is available at Waterstones, Amazon and selected independent bookstores in Sheffield. We want to make sure all families can benefit from this book.

That’s why we’re running a Buy-One-Give-One free scheme. For every copy you purchase, we will give one away for free to someone in the community. Free copies of the book will be available at local community centres, schools and libraries across Sheffield.
