Cooking Tips

We know that encouraging people to develop healthy eating habits involves more than just making healthier food available to them. Many clients, even when they receive healthy foods like produce, may be unfamiliar with the item or not know how to prepare it, and agency staff and volunteers may not have the knowledge or time to help clients with recipes or ideas. This "Cooking Tips" page is designed for you to distribute to your clients to help them utilize the produce they receive. Each sheet gives several basic preparations for produce items available through the food bank.

Print the cooking tip for the produce items you are distributing, cut into quarters, and give out to your clients with their food. Cooking Tips for the items available on any given day can also be found at the produce cooler in the Distribution Center.
