Click to download our “Food Bank of Iowa Chopped – Hot Dish Edition” cookbook, sponsored and designed by Nationwide. This cookbook is filled with delicious, easy, award-winning recipes from our 2021 casserole competition at the Iowa State Fair. Olivia Smith of Winterset won the top prize of $1,000 in the contest, designed to highlight simple and affordable options for all Iowans. Recipes in the book are made with ingredients commonly available from food pantry shelves stocked by Food Bank of Iowa or otherwise easily attainable by folks feeding a family on a tight budget.
