Sam O’Riley, Atchison County Community Services Director, has been working on a Meal in a Bag Challenge.   Meal in a bag is based on a recipe that uses shelf stable foods that a family in need can take and make easily with a recipe included. Anyone can donate a meal for a family in need. Community Services will provide the recipe to participating families.

This week’s challenge recipe is Spam & Noodle Casserole. Ingredients are: 1 package of egg noodles, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can Spam, and 8 ounces of Velveeta (or other brand).
