Middle school’s Living Environment students publish cookbook to raise money for Minisink CARES

Students with their cookbooks

Minisink Valley Middle School Living Environment students have created “The Minisink Valley Living Environment Cookbook,” a collection of recipes for special occasions, breakfasts and dinners.

The cookbook was developed as part of the class’ studies in Biochemistry.

It features their favorite recipes and includes those from their parents, grandmothers, a grandfather and yes, even an “Uncle Bob.”

Cookbook coverThe recipes even include a nutritional analysis for those interested in each recipe’s nutritional composition to be scientifically determined and measured. This is important as the nutritional composition of food is of major significance to the consumer and government  authorities.

“Learning is about understanding the who and what we come from,” said Living Environment teacher Rebecca Foster-Faith. “Therefore, there is nothing more fundamental to understanding ourselves, than understanding what is in the foods we love to eat.”

Reprints of the cookbook are available for $10 each.  Cash or checks should be made out to the Minisink Valley Student Government. 

Funds raised will be donated to Minisink CARES for needs within the immediate community.
