Published: Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

Making the Most of Your Food Basket Donations is a newly-developed website by the University of Illinois Extension that can help.

The website, http://urbanext.illinois.edu/foodbaskets, offers several ways to organize a donation drive or packaging of donations received to provide healthier combinations to meet the needs of its recipients.

The website was developed by Karen Chapman-Novakofski, extension specialist, nutrition, to provide donors and recipients with sample menus, shopping lists, and recipes for using the gift foods.

The website offers 6 days of suggested food donations and accompanying recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
