On a day when everything seems futile, food writer and campaigner Jack Monroe has advice for those asking where we go from here, tweeting

People asking what we do now. We grieve. For a bit. And then we help the most vulnerable in any way we can. We donate to food banks. We campaign for living wages. We fight like buggery for our NHS. We sign every petition that we can get our hands on that might improve something.

In a viral thread, Monroe outlined the reasons for positivity and concluded by reminding people to donate to their fundraiser to get Tin Can Cook, a cookbook aimed at people who have never learned to cook, into as many food banks as possible.

Donate and let's start getting things back on track. There's a hard road in store but take heed of the words of Margaret Mead:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
