One Meal at a Time!

  • Fill your pantry with shortcut ingredients such as canned beans and canned vegetables, salsa, pasta and pasta sauce, and other convenience foods that help get meals on the table quickly.

  • Keep healthy canned fruits such as Mandarin oranges, pineapple, apricots, and pears on hand for quick snacks and desserts and for vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.

  • Canned baby shrimp, minced clams, tuna, and skinless, boneless salmon are ultra convenient. All contain healthy omega-3 fats.
