Hunger and Help: Are Community Fridges the Answer?

people-850097_1280

  The community fridge not only feeds the hungry, but helps cut down on waste. In the United States, recent data suggests that as much as "133 billion pounds of food ... [or] 31 percent of the total food supply" is wasted in a typical year, rather than going to feed someone --  a waste which Pope Francis said is "like stealing from the table of the poor and the hungry." But food safety laws prevent communities in the U.S. from setting up community refrigerators like the one in Spain.. A co … [Read more...]

Simcha’s favorite passover recipes that will have you schvitzing under the eyeballs

gefilte fish jar

In the past, I've written about the emotional and spiritual experience of celebrating the Passover seder as Hebrew Catholics.This year, I'd like to talk about what's really important: THE FOOD.We do not keep kosher, and we don't clean the house of chametz (leavened bread), and we don't follow the special, even stricter "kosher for Passover" rules. The foods we prepare for Passover are symbolic and nostalgic, as well as delicious; but I wouldn't serve them if we had a rabbi for a … [Read more...]

boy eating beet for some reason

Today, I'm making Zuppa Toscana. When I share recipes I'm trying, people often ask, "Will your kids really eat that?" The answer is: some of them, yeah. Some of them, no way. A few of them, maybe. And I am fine with that. I have two goals when I serve a meal: at least half the family should eat it, and mealtimes should be reasonably pleasant.My policy is: I decide what to cook, and they decide whether or not to eat it.We don't have food battles (or food cold wars). We don't save plates … [Read more...]
