Coco Daal with Goya

I’ve partnered up with Goya and their Meatless Monday campaign and am excited to support their “Can Do” initiative. For every can of Goya Coconut Milk purchased in December, Goya will donate products to Feeding America. The food will then be distributed to families in need at local food banks across the country. The ‘Can Do’ campaign is part of Goya Gives, a national initiative committed to supporting local communities through social and environmental causes.  By the end of the year, Goya will donate at least 600,000 pounds of food.

We can all use a great meatless Monday dish and with this recipe you can have a great dinner on the table and support a great cause! #winwin #goyagives
