Did you see the article on sustainable cuisine in July’s issue of Wired? This idea is FASCINATING to me. Pairing the experience and knowledge of long-time McDonalds executives with the desire to bring sustainable, healthy quick-service restaurant meals to the masses — it’s brilliant.

Who doesn’t like the idea of getting more for your dollar? I know I always give myself a pat on the back when my grocery cashier tells me, “You saved $35 this week!” For me, it’s a sense of accomplishment with little consequence either way, but for many families, savings can mean the difference between a meal on the table and going to bed hungry. Luckily there are organizations like Share Our Strength®, a national nonprofit whose goal is to end childhood hunger in America. One of their many programs is Cooking Matters®, which empowers low-income families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to prepare healthy and affordable meals.
