My husband and I have jobs that enable us to satisfy that hunger with delicious, nutritious meals. Not every parent is able to fill those hungry beaks, yet the rest of us can help to bridge those gaps through our regular shopping trips. You see, Feeding America Food Banks plan to donate up to 75 million meals based on the purchases we make at Walmart.

This recipe doesn’t just fight hunger at my house; it also helps to provide two meals at Feeding America! [Read more…]
