“Green BEAN Delivery is passionate about encouraging our communities to cook nutritious meals at home using vibrant, seasonal and local foods rather than ordering takeout,” said Beth Blessing, MSN, co-founder and chief nutritionist of Green BEAN Delivery. “This contest allows both members and non-members to share their culinary talents in multiple categories, whether it’s a simple grab-and-go lunch or a gourmet meal on the grill.”
