Sturgeon County crafts community cookbook

Sales would support kids in need

Sturgeon County is cooking up a cookbook to support kids in need. 

County councillors backed administration's efforts to publish a cookbook based on county-area recipes at their Oct. 13 council meeting. 

County Family and Community Support Services manager Scott Rodda said his department came up with the idea for a community cookbook as a way to bring people together during the pandemic. The book would collect family recipes from county residents along with tales of local history. The book would sell for $5, with all proceeds supporting the county’s Sponsor A Child program, which helps county kids buy school supplies and participate in recreational programs.  

Rodda said in an email that he had received about 15 recipes so far and hoped to collect enough this fall to publish the book before Christmas. The book would be available in print or digital. Anyone who submitted a recipe would get a free copy. 

Questions on the book should go to [email protected].
