Collectively, we will be donating over $7,000 to 23 different non-profit organizations. Each location chose a non-profit organization to donate their cookbook proceeds to. Non-profit organizations benefiting from this initiative include health and human service organizations, such as homeless shelters and food banks; youth and education organizations, such as schools and youth sports teams; and animal rescue organizations, such as shelters and clinics.
