John & Elana Talk about Food is a delightful blog written by Italian brother/sister duo John and Elana Iaciofano. This holiday season, these friends of Just Food have set out on their first cookbook adventure, producing a beautiful book of delicious pizzas. Top Your Pizza was a labor of love, but the authors wanted to be able to share more than their recipes. They have generously decided to donate 80% of the book’s sales to Just Food.
According to Elana, “It's exciting to give back, especially to a cause and organization that I really believe in. I'm hoping that the cookbook sales will help with Just Food's mission while also increasing people's awareness on how to make excellent pizza (with local and seasonal ingredients, of course)!”

The Fresh Food For All and City Farms Markets programs, featured below, are just two of six Just Food programs that connect local residents, farms, and organizations with the resources and support they need to grow, cook, and find good food.
Just Food’s Fresh Food For All Program, including the Local Produce Link partnership with United Way, connects food pantries with local farmers to provide fresh produce and cooking demonstrations to encourage clients to make simple, healthy and delicious meals for their families. The program works with more than 45 food pantries city-wide.
The City Farms Markets are community-run farmers markets that are closely linked to community gardens or urban farms and are started by members of the community who want to bring fresh, affordable food to their neighborhoods. Just Food provides training, materials and technical support to the City Farms Market network, which has grown to include 18 markets for the 2011 season.
