Rescued Food Recipes

“Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” – Psalm 34:8

I met some of the “goodness of the Lord” through Shannon Haskins before I met Shannon herself.  You see, one morning my co-worker shared some of her granola with me and I tell you, it was a little piece of heaven straight to my mouth! I had never tasted granola so sweet and tasty in my life. It was almost like your grandmother’s best oatmeal cookie all crumbled up, but better, if you can believe that! Since that very first bite, I was hooked on her treats, but Shannon herself is one of our most dedicated volunteers and I can’t say enough great things about her!

Shannon has volunteered with Grace Klein Community since 2010 and has blessed us with her time and gifts in so many ways, including being an instrumental part of connecting us to one of our food box ministry host churches. She will tell you that she has seen God move in countless ways at Grace Klein over the years through answered prayers, needs met and changed lives. Shannon has delivered food boxes for so long, recipients are now considered family. She feels that the community of volunteers are priceless and among some of the most special relationships she has ever made.

We at Grace Klein Community feel the same way about Shannon and we want to share her with all of you in a new way. Starting this month, we will begin a new series featuring Shannon’s recipe’s created from rescued food!

What is rescued food? Food waste throughout America is excessive. Rescued Food is edible food, no longer necessarily suitable quality for store selling that is being saved from the dumpster and, ultimately, the landfill. Such food is donated to organizations like Grace Klein Community to care for financially insecure families who otherwise cannot afford healthy food.

Shannon has an amazing knack for creating more from less and taking the different things she finds here and turning them into delectable masterpieces! We will include pictures of her creations and want to hear back from you when you try them for yourself.
