Food For All Cookbooks

The Penticton Salvation Army Food Bank and Valley First/Feed the Valley partner in providing food, funds and nutrition resources to families struggling to make ends meet.

Of particular assistance to families are simple tools that allow them to utilize inexpensive, nutritious and readily accessible ingredients such as dried legumes often included in the hampers they regularly receive.

Two series of five little nutrition guide books teaching how to nourish ourselves well on a limited income were created and are now distributed freely at the food bank….They are called “Food For All – the Legume Series”. The series includes: Red Beans, White Beans, Lentils and Split Peas, Novelty Beans and Legumes and Grains and Food For All-Vegetable Series” cookbooks. The series includes: Beet, Eggplant, Kale, Summer Squash, Winter Squash. All versions are available here for download:
