Foodies Fighting Hunger: Crustless Veggie Frittate in Muffin Tins

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from my blogging gal-pal, Whitney Fisch, asking if I would join her campaign, Foodies Fighting Hunger. The challenge? Each blogger had to create a recipes that feeds a family of four and costs $5.00 max. The math is easy. The challenge illuminated the reality.

All food bloggers are creative types who love a good challenge so I jumped right in. Before I knew it, I found a spreadsheet in my inbox, with an impressive list of participating food writers, all ready to pause their schedules and get cooking for a cause.

Our goal? We hope to raise awareness, dispel myths around hunger and encourage advocacy and change.

We partnered with Mazon in order to get the facts right. Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger, is a national nonprofit organization working to end hunger in the United States and Israel for all faiths and backgrounds. For sobering and shocking facts, click Mazon to read just how prevalent hunger in America and Israel is.

According to Mazon, Hunger affects 1 out of every 7 American men, women and children and persists in this country not because of a lack of food, but because we lack the political will to end the problem by ensuring that vulnerable people have equal access to nutritious food.

Hard to believe, isn’t it?

Here are some ways you can help:

Next time you host a party, dinner or event, ask your guests to bring canned goods to donate to your local food pantry. Drive them over yourself or ask a teen to help you.

Sign up to volunteer at your local shelter or cook community meals as part of your congregation’s group efforts. I ran into my synagogue’s lady prez as I was writing this and made a verbal pledge to do this.

Educate others by sharing this post and other posts in the Foodies Fighting Hunger campaign. * Links are just before the recipe.

Invest in and Improve Child Nutrition Programs.

Tell Congress to end hunger for military families NOW!

The total cost of this recipe broke down this way:

6 eggs- 1.05
4 oz. of shredded mozarella – 1.85
1 small onion- .25
1 small green pepper- .50
4 oz frozen spinach .50

My total was $4.15 without calculating 4 Tb. milk. I took Whitney’s cue and nabbed some salt and pepper from a take-out joint. Maybe there was a little leftover for a few pinches of dried herbs and the milk.

I sure hope so.
