The proceeds from the magazine go to the Healthy Food Bank, a nonprofit organization that purchases basic nutritious food for local food banks around North America.The quality of this magazine is awesome, although it is electronic, which is a potential downside to many. For one, you can't leave it lying around to demonstrate your $5.99 worth of philanthropy. ;)
Go to the site, sign up for the newsletter and gain access to the sample copy. It's beautifully made and more than just a cooking mag. For those that are interested in the backstory behind wonderful food, it's a fun time.
Checkout their blog, too. Spezzatino blog
For those fitness and nutrition veterans, you might recognize a lot of Precision Nutrition names in the mag and blog. These people know stuff.
