Summer Recipe from the Daily Bread Kitchen

July 3, 2021

In the summer months at Daily Bread Food Bank we see an abundance of fresh produce, especially zucchini through our Farm to Food Bank program!

Did you know that although zucchini is often considered a vegetable, it is botanically classified as a fruit? And, it occurs in several varieties, which range in color from deep yellow to dark green.

Zucchini is also rich in Vitamin A and C, fiber, and potassium making this summer vegetable the perfect addition to any meal.

See our nutritious and delicious Zucchini Tomato Casserole recipe below!
