The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) wants you to never again wonder, “What’s for dinner?”

The nonprofit just launched Click ‘N Cook, an online resource that helps users find healthy, simple recipes using affordable ingredients. Anybody can search the 500-recipe database by entering up to three ingredients she has on hand; filtering by nutritional qualities such as low-fat, low-sodium, or high-fiber; or by specifying a cooking method, such as oven or microwave.

“Click ‘N Cook was originally created to help provide economical recipes and practical cooking tips to the more than 140,000 people in need we serve every month,” GBFB President and CEO Catherine D’Amato says in a statement. “As the site has grown to hundreds of recipes, it has become a valuable resource for anyone looking for ideas for healthy, affordable, and delicious meals.”

Each recipe on the site—which spans options from slow cooker stuffed peppers to apple bread pudding—is dietitian-approved and includes nutrition information.

In conjunction with the site’s launch, GBFB announced its 2017 fundraising campaign, which aims to raise $2 million by April 15. Those interested in donating may do so individually or start a team, here.
