Lessons/suggestions This was a WONDERFUL fundraiser b/c we raised a decent amount of money, but, more importantly, increased awareness of healthy eating habits! The cookbook was purchased by students and faculty alike, and we are confident that the recipes will help encourage healthy eating habits. =)
