Cookbook sale raises cash for scholarships
The Hernando County School Nutrition Association is selling cookbooks, part of a national effort by food service personnel to promote nutritionally sound meals that are appealing to children.
The local organization also provides scholarships each year to high school seniors to continue their education in culinary arts or in food and nutrition fields. This year, one of the fundraisers is the cookbook.
District employees submitted recipes over a four-week period, resulting in 290 recipes, bound in a hard-cover book. Fifty copies are available at $12 each.
To buy one, call Fran Thomas, president of the association and the assistant food service manager at Chocachatti Elementary, at (352) 797-7067, ext. 205. Thomas is available from 7:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. daily.
