Sanderson Farms Encourages Families to Pull from the Pantry

–Sanderson Farms launches new program helping families to save time and moneyLAUREL, Miss., Feb 23, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — With the holiday season over and extracurricular activities back in full swing, families are juggling packed schedules. The slow economy is also forcing most families to look for creative new ways to save money. With that in mind, Sanderson Farms has developed the Pull From The Pantry program encouraging families to prepare meals at home with basic ingredients currently found in their kitchens.

Children racing out the door to catch the school bus with Pop-Tarts in hand and cafeterias serving lunches with dishes resembling fast food, school day meals often lack the healthier options that parents value for their kids. However after a day of school, work and activities, it’s easy for families to lose the motivation to prepare a home-cooked meal. Sanderson Farms has developed quick recipes to help families unwind while sharing dinner during the week.

By utilizing inexpensive ingredients commonly found in most kitchens, Sanderson Farms’ Pull From The Pantry program is helping families stay on schedule and on budget. From Italian breadcrumbs and pasta to rice and frozen vegetables, Sanderson Farms’ quick recipes incorporate household food staples.

The whole family will enjoy Sanderson Farms’ Asian inspired Chicken and Basil Stir Fry or classic Italian Chicken Parmesan. For a new take on sandwiches, Sanderson Farms has developed Chicken Lettuce Wraps and updated the traditional American Chicken Pot Pie, with recipes starting as low as two dollars per person.

These timesaving recipes feature Sanderson Farms 100 percent natural chicken as a lean and healthy, center of the plate ingredient. While some other companies are injecting their chicken with additives, such as salt and seaweed extract, Sanderson Farms offers, and always has, truly 100 percent natural chicken.
