City Times reporter Jesus Lopez is back with #CityCookingChallenge at San Diego City College Hunger Action Day. Using  food  donated by Feeding San Diego,  this week #CityCookingChallenge got inspired by America’s favorite dessert apple pie. 

Gala red apples are especially great for baking a succulent apple pie. Using ingredients already on hand,  such as butter, he said, “we were able to add richness to the pie.”

An optional side to top it off is vanilla ice cream.
