Nourish PA Volunteers Recipe Submission Form

Our Nourish PA video and recipe series features recipes created by volunteer Pennsylvania chefs and food professionals to demonstrate how to prepare healthy, simple and affordable meals. Our goal for these recipes is to make them accessible to home cooks with any level of experience, even brand-new beginners, who may have limited kitchen supplies and pantry staples.

We’re accepting recipe submissions from chef volunteers to add to this educational resource for PA residents who are struggling with food insecurity, and for organizations working to reduce hunger in Pennsylvania.

Before submitting a recipe, please thoroughly read the guidelines for submission and terms of participation. If you have any questions prior to submitting, please contact us.
