Pantry Box Recipe Challenge
Putting Together Pantry Boxes
Each month, clients in our Pantry Program receive a distribution of nutritious groceries. These boxes include fresh produce, dairy, protein, and shelf-stable products. We provide a range of grocery items that will last for multiple days over the course of the month. Currently, our Pantry Program clients receive these distributions straight to their door!
As we open our regular Pantry programming, clients will also be able to schedule an appointment to pick- up a box – selecting from three menu options for the month. Before the pandemic, most of our pantries were set-up as “choice pantries” or like a small grocery store, which meant that families shopped for their food. We hope to get back to that set-up soon as we begin to resume more normal operations.
This week, we wanted to share a sample menu with you, with a challenge! Using the menu below, we would like to see what recipes you can put together. Are you up for the challenge??
