Rice & Beans Month 2013

Welcome to Rice and Beans Month 2013! Each year during March, we connect with a global community of people and together we choose to simplify our diets to eat in solidarity with our friends in East Africa. At the end of the month, we share our food savings to help nourish the hungry. We hope you plan to join us this month! If you haven’t yet seen this year’s Rice & Beans video by Casey Schilperoort, take a look to see how lives are being changed in East Africa one meal at a time. It’s a great way to explain the goals of the month not just for you and your family, but to friends and family who might be wondering about the undertaking you’re doing this month. If you’re in the Portland area, we’d love to have you join us at the Monday Night Meals — it’s a great time of fellowship and for discovering other people’s favorite rice and bean dishes.

As always, we would love to hear from you about your experiences as the month progresses.  Share your recipes, stories, advice, and questions at the Rice & Beans Facebook page, and check out www.eatriceandbeans.com/recipes for some great meal options for the month.  We look forward to hearing from you!
