The Cambridge Food Bank works hard to keep as much food out of the landfill as possible; using the power of volunteers our Food Rescue program has saved thousands of pounds of food from going to waste. What we save can vary based on what food is in abundance; during this specific week, we focused on bread that was no longer at peak freshness but is still good to eat. Our kitchen team got right to work chopping and seasoning bread to make delicious croutons that will be distributed to those using the food bank’s emergency hamper program. Whether added to a salad, a soup or a casserole, homemade croutons can be seasoned to your taste and add an extra crunch to your meal.
A big thank you to Oluyinka and Akingbade who join us every week in our kitchen to send food to bellies, not the landfill.
