Food Bank Dinner 2015

2

For the 4th consecutive year I prepared a dinner to benefit our local food bank, helping to raise over $10,000. The menu uses both canned & dry pantry goods, as well as traditionally wasted parts, offal and scrap. Here’s a rundown of this years menu, as well as links to previous events. If anyone is interested in learning how to put together one of these events in their community, I’d be more than happy to help.
