A Classic Pumpkin Recipe


It’s National Preparedness Month, a month dedicated as a reminder for everyone to take action and make sure you have an emergency plan in place for any type of disaster. This is the perfect time to get started if you haven’t already.

Following a disaster, the next steps of recovery are crucial. The Salvation Army’s EDS program recognizes that and is present at almost every disaster site, providing emergency assistance including food and shelter for survivors, first responders, and emergency personnel.

In celebration of Preparedness Month, we’re delighted to share another classic comfort food recipe from The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services Cookbook- which is used by Salvation Army personnel and volunteers to serve communities in need in the aftermath of disaster.

Nothing can welcome fall like a tasty pumpkin bread recipe. Whether you like it served with vanilla ice cream or smeared with cream cheese, something about that warmly spiced baked good hits the spot every time.

So without further ado, please enjoy this week’s EDS recipe!
