Bite sized bits: Of snack boxes, bacon and trotters

    Healthy snacks and kosher are rarely used in the same sentence. Sarah Dembitz has launched Saviour Snacks to change that perception. Boxes of healthy treats including pepper pistachios, chilli olives, and raw cacao bars are sent out on a regular basis or as a one-off gift. Kosher, vegetarian and gluten free snack boxes are available — which can be sent nationwide. For further information see www.savioursnacks.com

The charity was founded in the 1960s after Vivien Pick wrote to the JC asking to meet like-minded vegetarians.

    Michael Leventhal is the founder of Gefiltefest.
