Help Fight Hunger During Hunger Action Month!
Piscataquis Regional Food Center (PRFC) is a nonprofit organization in Dover-Foxcroft, ME dedicated to connecting people with sources of healthy food and building food security in rural Maine.
For Hunger Action Month this year, we want to purchase 500 copies of the cookbook Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day, by Leanne Brown. Leanne wrote the book to help folks eat healthy on a SNAP budget. She does a great job showing that you don’t need a lot of money or special ingredients to make enjoyable, healthy meals! Our goal is to distribute Leanne’s book to food cupboards all around Piscataquis County and surrounding towns. We want to share Good and Cheap with as many people as we can!
But to reach our goal of buying 500 copies, we need your help! Each copy costs just $5.00 and contains wonderful, nutritional budget-friendly recipes. Can we count you in? Your contribution of any amount will have lasting impact. We hope you will Take Action Against Hunger with us!
Challenge: The cost of the recipes in Leanne Brown's book average about $2.00. Can you make a healthy breakfast for 2 for $1.25? How about a lunch for $3.00? Dinner? If you think you can, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your recipe with a photo of the meal you made and we'll enter you into a drawing for a $25 gift card and a free hardcopy of Good and Cheap. Don't forget to let us know how much it cost!
