The Taste of Home Cooking School and Salem News, Morning Journal and The Review are proud to announce Cooks Who Care as part of this season's cooking show. Created by Taste of Home, Cooks Who Care is a pro-social effort to celebrate acts of caring by home cooks and communities across the country. Introduced as a magazine feature in October 2007, Cooks Who Care unites compassionate, real people across the country, who give back through food. Their stories of kindness are shared in print and on-line at www.tasteofhome.com.
The Taste of Home Cooking School invites you to join in this effort by bringing non-perishable food items to the show on May 9. All items will be donated to the Community Action Food Bank and benefit those in need throughout the community. "This is a great way to use a passion for food to help others. We're really excited to add this element to the show again this year," says Beth Volosin of the Salem News. In addition, everyone that brings a non-perishable food item to the show will receive a ticket for an "exclusive drawing" to win a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer donated by Home Savings.
Taste of Home Cooks Who Care has featured people across the country aiding those around them through their love for cooking. From stories of sending cookies to the troops to meals for the homeless and bake sales to help children in Africa, the ways to make a difference are endless.
"It's so fun to see people at shows across the country bringing food items to donate," adds culinary specialist Cheryl Cohen, "It really touches my heart to see people caring enough to help out their community."
