Good Shepherd Food Bank, Maine’s largest hunger relief organization, is launching, a one-stop online resource to find simple, nutritious, and easy-to-make recipes using everyday ingredients. 

Created by the Food Bank’s Nutrition and Education team, the site allows users to search through hundreds of recipes to see what they can make with items in their pantries, cupboards and refrigerators. Many of the recipes include ingredients distributed by the Food Bank’s network of over 500 partner agencies.

The site is a valuable resource of meal ideas, including featured seasonal dishes that rotate on the homepage. Some recipes offer demonstration videos, and all have nutritional labels to help users make the best choices possible for their and their family’s health. On the recipe page, there are options for a printer-friendly version of the recipe and sharing the recipe to social media sites.

Users interested in submitting an affordable, easy-to-make recipe can click the “Suggest a Recipe” button on the site and fill out the information needed for submission. The Food Bank is excited to have the community’s help building this much-needed resource for healthy cooking on a tight budget.

“ is a critical resource to help increase access to healthy food in our state. We know nutrition education is essential to reducing the impact of hunger in the lives of our neighbors,” said Kristen Miale, president of Good Shepherd Food Bank. The Food Bank’s Campaign to End Hunger in Maine aims to ensure all Mainers have access to the nutritious food they need to thrive, when and where they need it, by 2025.
