The Connecticut Food Bank is committed to providing people at risk of hunger with the resources they need to eat healthy. One of the ways we do this is by handing out healthy recipes at our Mobile Pantry Distributions. Here are some of the recipes that use popular items found on the Mobile Pantry that use items you are likely to have in your cupboard!
People who are food insecure often eat food high in salt, fat and sugar because it is more affordable. But there is a high price to pay. Consuming too much of these food items can cause obesity and illnesses like diabetes, heart disease and other health problems. The Connecticut Food Bank offers a Food Literacy Program aimed at educating children and families about the benefits of healthy eating.
