Oh yeah… I have been talking up the First Friday event about to occur here in our happy little town. My motivation is purely to entice people with fun and entertainment, but there is an element of giving back that will be going as well.
You see for a mere 5 dollars you can sample food cooked from recipes representing the entire globe. A project taken on by a local high schooler, Taylor Tofal, realizing that she could and does actually make a difference. The group is called The Cookbook Project and they help the United Nations World Food program. The chefs are all volunteers slaving in their kitchens and shelling out personal duckets for the tasty samples.
