Jay loves ketchup, he has it with everything! But when Jay’s mum loses her job things get tough and Jay starts going to school with a rumbling tummy.

There is a Food Bank in town that can help, but Jay’s mum refuses to go. It looks like Jay is going to be hungry forever!

Everything changes when Jay’s favourite condiments come to life. Can Kobe Ketchup and Jay save the day?

Kobe Ketchup and the Food Bank Adventure is an uplifting and timely tale that teaches children (and adults) about need, giving, receiving, and how we can all make a difference.
