Feeding Health: St. Patricks Day Recipes

Updated: Aug 28, 2019


Every day, Second Harvest’s Nutrition Services team heads out across the 18 counties that we serve, teaching cooking classes, nutrition classes, and sharing recipes. We know that hunger is a serious health issue in the communities we serve not just because of a lack of calories, but because of inconsistent access to healthy, nutritious and adequate food.

Sometimes, we are able to track down our nutritionists and get them to share some recipes with you! Here are some seasonal recipes that are healthy and low-cost.
