“Feeding Family, Feeding America” written and produced as a family affair by family members and three generations (Allison Hill, Cristina Hill, Chauncey Hill, Joan Satter, Carlisle Ghirardini, Cate Ghirardini, Caroline Ghirardini), has been released worldwide. This 112-page cookbook features favorites from Allison and her family, affectionately referred to as the “Maine Squad.” Developed while this extended group self-isolated in Ogunquit, Maine, the dishes are organized by meal type, and cover a broad range of styles – each packed with flavor and relatively simple to make. 100% of the proceeds from each sale are donated to the non-profit hunger-relief organization, Feeding America, with up to 100 meals served per book purchased.
“While the disappointments rolled in – missed senior years, missed prom, missed friends – we noticed many Americans were severely affected by the pandemic due to no fault of their own, especially those most marginalized. As a mom, seeing my daughters and nieces have a project and purpose to keep them focused on others was very rewarding,” said Allison Hill.
“We felt very fortunate as a family to have the things we needed to quarantine like internet and food but it wasn’t the same for so many others. The time to make the book is a small gesture of kindness to others.” said Cristina Hill, photographer and junior at Lovett.
According to Feeding America, “Due to the effects of the pandemic, more than 50 million people may experience food insecurity in 2020, including a potential 17 million children. Having the creative support from families like this raising funds is so valued and appreciated.”
Feeding Family, Feeding America can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including BarnesAndNoble.com and Amazon. The paperback retails for $24.99, and the hardcover retails for $29.99. Wholesale orders are available through Ingram. SeacoasPress.com/.
