Cookbook aims to raise money for food banks

22-Jul-2009

US Foodservice has published a cookbook entitled Recipes from the Heart in order to raise money for US food banks, as rising unemployment has forced even more Americans to rely on food donations.

The program, called Project STEM-ulus, will help provide nutritious food to the more than 36 million Americans, including 12.4 million children, who are 'food insecure', meaning they suffer from disrupted eating patterns and fewer meals because of a lack of money or other resources.

President and CEO of US Foodservice Bob Aiken said: "One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the books will be given to Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger relief organization, to provide fruits and vegetables to food pantries across the country for kids and families during this summer."

The 336-page cookbook is described as “a collection of kitchen favorites” and includes a foreword by Food Network host Paula Deen.
