Emergency Food Box Recipe Guide

Have you visited one of CFBNJ’s drive-through distributions recently?

Members of our Healthy Pantry Initiative, part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), have provided some creative ideas on how to prepare and use the items that you may have received in your emergency food and produce box or items that you  might have on hand.

Click through the links to the right for full recipes and nutrition information.

Utilizing a little creativity and thinking outside the box, you can make some tasty and nutritious meals for your family in less than an hour using the emergency food and fresh produce boxes from your local pantry or one of CFBNJ’s drive-through distributions. Join one of our NJ SNAP-Ed nutrition educators today as she provides some creative ideas. Full recipes and nutrition information here:
