Mushroom Love Goes Pink
October is a beautiful month for several reasons. Leaves are beginning to change color, the weather turns cool and crisp and comfort food finds its place at the table. As we embrace the beauty that surrounds us, we also take note of a very important message for October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the month of October the mighty mushroom becomes more than an ingredient at your table, it becomes part of a message for hope.
Through an annual $50,000 donation to City of Hope, a leading cancer research center, the Mushroom Council supports their research on breast cancer and mushrooms. In total, the council has donated more than $800,000 through the years. You will also notice a new color in the produce aisle this fall as mushroom tills “go pink” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Our featured recipe tab is filled with six recipes to put those fresh new mushrooms in your kitchen to good use. You can find even more inspiration on our collaborative “Mushrooms for Hope” Pinterest board with City of Hope and by following along with the #Fall4Mushrooms hashtag.
We also partnered with three amazing food bloggers this month, who are bringing brand new mushroom recipes to the table. Even better, their posts are providing a chance for YOU to win. Simply leave a comment on one of the posts below with your favorite mushroom recipe and you will be randomly entered for a chance to win a Mushroom Apron and $50 American Express Gift Card.
Cheers to a great and inspiring month ahead here at the Mushroom Channel!
