April 17-April 23rd: Virtual Volunteer Week Recipe Collection Event!

Sunday, April 17th from 12:01am to Saturday, April 23rd, 2022 11:59pm (ET)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


What's your favorite recipe for canned pork or Hidden Valley Ranch mix? Can you take beef stew and serve it 10 different ways? Does it include healthy ingredients, simple herbs and spices? We would love to share these types of recipes with our neighbors as we inspire and encourage those we serve, with little "nudges" towards healthy, sustainable habits based on what they might have on hand after visiting a food pantry or mobile distribution. 

We'll need you to submit your recipe in a Word document format as an attachment, when you add your Impact. Recipes should include one or more of the following ingredients: Great Northern Beans, Grapefruit Juice, Canned Corn, Chicken Drumsticks, Cheddar Cheese, Alaskan Pollock, Eggs (previous ingredient list updated as inventory changed-still accepting recipes from previous list). 

Remember, those we serve may not have access to a mandolin, veggie spiral-er, or convection oven. They may only have basic spices on hand (like salt, pepper or a "seasoned salt" type blend) and may not grow their own herbs or know how to use fresh herbs so giving an option to substitute dry or a more common version would be helpful. 

Your recipe will become a part of the Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana's library of ideas and encouragement for our neighbors. When we have any of the above items in stock we could then feature on our Facebook page or send out a printed version along with the items.
  • Highlight the items from our ingredient list within your recipe so we can easily organize which recipes to include as they are available.
  • If you would like to include some personal story or why you chose the recipe (your choice) we would love to spotlight you along with your recipe.
  • Please remember to give credit to the folks who actually created a recipe if you are just copying it. 
  • Each recipe submitted will count as 1 volunteer hour.
Questions? Please connect with our Volunteer Coordinator and the event's primary Administrator, Kellie Arrowood on the event page.
