Eat In This Evening

Friday, Mar. 3

The work week is most likely over and maybe you need to hit the grocery store. You might be tempted to hit the drive-thru or call for a pizza, but don’t. Make a pantry meal using what’s on hand. Most of us have things that may not be a tempting as what we’re accustomed to (or see advertised on TV) but are filling and more nutritious than what many people throughout the world have on a regular basis. Involve the whole family: make a game of creating a tasty dish using leftovers and pantry staples (or the UFOs—Unidentifiable Frozen Objects lurking in your freezer).

Go deeper: Read about hunger in Maryland . Honestly assess how much food your family wastes and commit to being better stewards. Decide to work in or support a hunger ministry.
