Recipe Development Tips

When you're creating $1 per serving recipes, here are some ingredients you might consider. These items are often available to Food Bank Clients:
  • Carrot Pieces. These are what's left over when "baby carrots" are whittled out of regular-size carrots. They're chunks about 2-3 inches long - and the Food Bank gets a lot of them!

  • Onions. Whole onions. Nuff said.

  • Cabbage. Regular green heads of cabbage, usually either too gigantic or too small for grocery stores.

  • Cottage Cheese. At times, we get a lot of this - but many people don't know what to do with it.

  • Rice. The most popular starch we distribute - but it has been really expensive lately. So if you can figure out a way to stretch it, cool!

  • Beans. Dried beans are also popular, typically pinto beans.
