What's Cooking? DSFederal partners with the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service

The USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works to end hunger, reduce obesity, improve access to nutritious food, and promote healthy eating and lifestyle habits. In 2016, DSFederal was proud to support the mission of FNS, collaborating with partner company Fexy to produce a series of recipe videos that feature healthy and delicious meal options. Famed Chefs Carla Hall and Amy Riolo star in these engaging short videos, set in a cheerful home kitchen.

Though the dishes are all different, the videos have several things in common: All showcase healthy but delicious meals using inexpensive and readily available ingredients, which are quickly and easily prepared. The end results are visually appealing and nutritionally balanced, with careful consideration of the USDA’s dietary recommendations. But how does the food taste?

DSFederal employees tried the Stuffed Bell Peppers and Picadillo, and were pleased to find that the recipes were easy to follow, and produced delicious results. We look forward to trying the Eagle Pizza and Three Sisters Stew. Try a recipe and leave a comment for us – we'd love to hear about your results. Bon appetit!
