Donna, Bruce Hungry Heart Recipes to the Rescue is a testament of love collected by two dedicated curators, Annette and Candy. And this is not just a collection of recipes from around the globe; this is a collection of love and memories for the music and live concert experiences that fans have cherished of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. May the food detailed within bring as much joy and comfort as the music, the man, and the band have brought to us all while raising funds and awareness to end hunger. 


Collecting recipes from Bruce Springsteen and E-Street band fans, to compile a book to raise funds for WHYHUNGER.


Feeling blessed by the love bestowed upon us by Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street band, via concerts, lyrics, autobiography and numerous encounters "out in streets" as well as their entertaining social media exchanges, we felt the urge, no, the NEED to find a way to give back.

This new Blood Brothers and Sisters - RECIPE BOOK is our way of not only saying Thank you, but of also helping those who are hungry out in the streets.

All proceeds from sales will be donated to WhyHunger

Here is the fun part:
