At True Food Kitchen, it’s all about honest food that tastes really good. You don’t have to be a die-hard yogi to dine at True Food Kitchen - you need only a desire to give your body nutrients, and your palate something memorable. The basis for the anti-inflammatory diet isn’t meant to deprive a healthy body of great flavors, it’s meant to take popular trends in cuisine and pair them with healthy living. Chef Dan Ganos joins us tonight to share True Food Kitchen’s approach and a selection of great dishes that are as healthful as they are delightful.

The General Muir has been compared – with good reason – to the Jewish delicatessens of New York City. With freshly baked bagels, crusty rye breads, latkes with applesauce, and house-cured pastrami and corned beef, it’s become a favorite among locals and homesick New Yorkers. So it’s no surprise that Chef Todd Ginsberg decided to explore the traditional foods of Passover in this class. Whether you are planning your own Passover Seder or just want to learn some great recipes from a revered chef, this is the class for you!

Each May, the U.S. Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers join together to “Stamp Out Hunger” and deliver millions of pounds of food to more than 200 Feeding America food banks.

Outnumber Hunger is an initiative that makes it easy for people to join in the fight against hunger in their own communities.  Specially marked food packages direct consumers to enter codes online at www.OutnumberHunger.com to help Feeding America secure meals for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  For every code entered by March 1, 2014, Outnumber Hunger will donate $0.65 – enough to secure five meals on behalf of local food banks. 

Throughout 2013, Panera Bread will give their customers the opportunity to donate money at the register to assist the Atlanta Community Food Bank's mission of fighting hunger. A portion of the cash donations made by customers may be matched by Panera and its franchisees. If you would like to contribute to the effort, please look for the Community Breadbox collection containers at participating Panera Bread locations.

Each spring, Publix Super Markets customers can donate at the register to provide food for hungry families.  As a token of appreciation, customers making a donation will receive a special Food for Sharing reusable bag.

Ongoing Campaigns

West Egg Café turned 10 years old and is celebrating with a year-long campaign to raise $10,000 for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  "It is easy to take for granted basic things that so many in our community lack: stable homes, the ready availability of our next meal, the easy comfort that our children will not go to bed hungry,” said co-owners Jennifer and Ben Johnson.  West Egg will match donations dollar for dollar up to $5,000 in an effort to raise a total of $10,000.  No amount is too small!  West Egg will meet their goal if 500 people give just $10 each.
