Community Cookbook Supports Community
From the get-go, this project was all about community– celebrating what we have in South Georgian Bay and helping to grow and develop our food community.
With that goal in mind, we committed that 10% from each book sold would be set aside in a fund to support local food initiatives and programs.
Well folks, as of December 31, 2017 we have raised $10,432.40!
That is a serious chunk of change and we have all of you who have purchased a book (or two or three) or helped sell the book in your store. High fives everyone! This is just another example of how incredible the community is in our region.
With the money you’ve helped raise, we have been able to support numerous programs throughout the South Georgian Bay area. So far the fund has helped support the following programs and community gardens:
- Golden Town Outreach, Meaford – Multiple Community Gardens
- SnaX Program – Collingwood Youth Centre
- GBG Veggie Club – Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Georgian Triangle
We’re also chatting with a few other groups doing great things with food in our community so keep an eye on the website and social media to stay up to date on how the fund is being put to good use.
