Multi-Cultural Cookbook Project

Let your taste buds travel the world! Join us as we celebrate the many cultures that make Peekskill a wonderful community to live in. Our goal is to create and publish a cookbook with recipes that showcase the tapestry of our city. The accompanying food festivals will be a great opportunity to help neighbors learn a little bit more about each other.

Volunteers are needed to contribute recipes, produce the cookbook, reach out to local restaurants, make food for the events, and help with set-up/clean-up.
