Chew on This Classic Comfort Food From Our Disaster Services Cookbook

While every disaster merits a unique response, the core of The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) program is meeting basic needs like food and shelter. Salvation Army canteens can be spotted at the scene of almost every disaster, preparing and serving up to 1,500 meals a day for survivors, first responders, and emergency personnel.

The best short-term relief comes in the form of delicious, calorie-ridden food. So in light of National Preparedness Month, here’s another delightful recipe from The Salvation Army’s EDS Cookbook.

A classic brunch staple, this comfort food is a good remedy for disasters and Monday mornings alike.
