Chef Lidia Bastianich and a friend whip up a tasty meal using ingredients from Food Bank For NYC

Long before she was a famous chef, restaurateur, author, TV host, and Culinary Council member at the Food Bank For New York City, chef Lidia Bastianich knew what it was like to be hungry. We brought Lidia and the Food Bank For New York City together to help fight hunger. Lidia and Elva, a community leader and former food bank client, shopped at the local food pantry and prepared a meal. Together, they show that a nutritious meal can be prepared using simple ingredients.
