  Valley Outreach Programs  


Thanks to the 360 guests, 20 sponsors, and many, many more supporters, we raised over $100,000 at the third annual Feed the Valley Cook's Challenge event!

We were thrilled to have such an engaged and dynamic crowd of guests. A very brave, young mom - Paula - spoke about her experience with Valley Outreach and the truly life-changing difference our programming made for her and her 3 1/2 year old twins. It was all about healthy choices in the food shelf, and in her words, "being able to eat all the fresh fruits and vegetables I wanted. I could never afford that."

We are incredibly grateful to all those who supported this event; what a generous community of supporters. It was an amazing and humbling event. Thank you!

Cook's Challenge 2016 Recap


Winning Recipe:

1/2 can garbanzo beans
6 breakfast sausage links (casing removed)
1 chicken breast
2 containers of sweet potato baby food
1/4 cup maple flavored syrup
1/2 pear - small dice
1/4 cup dried cherries - rough chopped
1 cup kale
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. wasabi

Mash up garbanzo beans. Partially cook the chicken with a little bit of oil. Add chicken, sausage, Worcestershire sauce, wasabi and salt/pepper together. Add more oil to the pan the chicken was cooked in. Form the bean mixture into patties and fry in the oil. For the sauce, put the pears and cherries in a hot pan for about a minute. Add the maple syrup and baby food. Cook the sauce down until thick. Mix the kale with a little bit of oil used to fry the patties. Plate and serve. - Winning cooks John & Nina-Marie
