Cookbook for Donated Foodstuffs

Jim Leff | Nov 24, 200011:53 PM    

Just heard about a cool thing...poor people are given food boxes with staple foodstuffs this time of year. But what can they do with this stuff? Cookbooks are expensive (and, anyway, call for all sorts of diverse ingredients, many of which may be too expensive).

There's a group putting together a cookbook of recipes that make use of canned stuff, staples, normal/cheap stuff people might get as charity (and/or extras they could afford to buy themselves).

If interested in contributing (there's some sort of prize as well), see link below.

I've not thoroughly researched these people, so please check for yourselves whether it's a scam or not. Hope not; sounds like a good idea.

ciao
