GE Appliances has launched a new Facebook application offering tips, recipes and a community to learn more about cooking.

The new app’s recipes and cooking tips were created by GE employees, including Chef Joe Castro, Chef Brian Logsdon and product managers. Users can take those tips to improve their skills, then share how they are progressing their culinary skills with friends and family on Facebook.

Every time Social Kitchen “chefs” cook a recipe and log it on Facebook, GE will donate a meal to Blessings in a Backpack, a non-profit organization providing children who are on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program, with a backpack of food to take home for 38 weekends during the school year.
