Unbound serves more than 18,000 sponsored children and elderly in Honduras. An Unbound mothers group there, the Faith and Hope mothers group, sells homemade hamburgers to those in their community. They made such amazing hamburgers that we had to get the recipe and share it with you, along with a special sauce they make to go with the burgers. Here is part one of the recipe!
