NBC’s The Biggest Loser, General Mills, Subway, and food banks around the country are partnering on the Pound For Pound Challenge for the third year in a row. For every pound of weight participants pledge to lose, a pound of food (or 5 pounds to maintain a healthy weight) will be donated to a local food bank (like ours). When you sign up for the Pound For Pound Challenge at www.pfpchallenge.com, you can immediately join a team –our team’s name is “Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano” – or create your own. You can also join our group “Pound For Pound Challenge – Contra Costa and Solano” on facebook for support and event updates.

To kick off our first recipe of the 2011 Season, this week we are going to showcase our Pound For Pound Challenge Champion’s favorite breakfast recipe, Patti’s Melt (links to recipes listed below).
