CARE Package Recipes
This May marks the 68th Anniversary of the CARE package! CARE coined the phrase on May 11, 1946 when we sent lifesaving CARE packages of food and supplies to families in war-torn Europe. Join us in honoring the CARE package by pinning your favorite recipe comprising ingredients found in the original CARE package. Use the hashtag #CAREPackageRecipes with your pin and we might just pin it to our board too!
It seems that one of the main CARE Package ingredients is love! Sixty-six years ago, CARE played matchmaker for Leo and Helga, who exchanged CARE Packages for two years before they fell in love and got married. Click the pin to read more about their heartwarming story.
