Cooking to Connect is a community-based project in which locals of the Lancaster community will share their favorite recipes to create a cookbook. The cookbook will include a collection of recipes from various cultures in the community and spotlight the cook and the traditions related to the dish. After creating the cookbook, Mary will host a community luncheon showcasing some of the featured dishes as well as selling the cookbooks to raise money for The Lancaster area Coalition for the homeless. Her hope is that the cookbook and luncheon will allow the Lancaster community to break cultural boundaries and connect with one another while enjoying something as simple as a meal.
