Julian Argoti wasn’t much of a cook. But when he realized that most of the low income seniors he worked with as a public health intern at the city of Greenbelt Food Pantry were dealing with diabetes and high blood pressure, he decided to become one. The Capital Area Food Bank was there to help.
The food bank is hard at work on an exciting new project that will get delicious, healthy, and low cost recipes into the hands of our community. As we anticipate the September 2016 launch of our new cookbook, “Bountiful Bowls”, we’re giving you a sneak preview of what’s to come. Check back often for updates!
As we embark on a new year, it is a great opportunity to take the next step on a path towards healthy cooking and eating.
