Eat Well On A Budget

Eating well doesn't have to break the bank. Stick to recipes with fewer ingredients or that use staples you already have. When you meal plan for the week, pick a theme and buy in bulk. For instance, you can poach or roast a whole chicken on Sunday and just eat the legs, wings, and thighs with roasted vegetables on the side. On Monday, slice up the breast and make chicken and rice. There should be enough for leftovers. On Wednesday, boil the bones and make a stock. This is great to use for a savory three bean and vegetable soup.

Thank You From Our Clients

Barbara moved here from Washington about 10 years ago. People told her about the food bank because she was hungry. She's worked different jobs throughout her life, and is still looking for work. Barbara really appreciates the assortment of produce she can get. "I gotta eat, and I haven’t been eating because there’s a microwave. I can come here, and I can get organic ya know greens, and I can squeeze lemon over the top. My mom had it runs in the family. And you guys [HCFB] really help me out a lot because I can’t afford it."
