Second Annual Mustard Seed Food Bank Cookbook Fundraiser – Update

Update: Thank-you to all those who came to the winter market and bought a cookbook. A check for $376 was presented to the Mustard Seed Food Banl -Ed


EAT Magazine is pleased to announce its Second Annual Mustard Seed Food Bank Cookbook Fundraiser. Here’s the deal: we’ve got a stack of almost-new, recently published cookbooks to pass along and you’ve got Christmas shopping to do. How about we meet up in one week at the Winter Market in Market Square?


EAT will have a table at the market with all the available cookbooks. Choose one (or many), make your donation and the books are yours. We’ll drink some warm apple cider, chat about food, find some new cookbooks, and raise money for a great cause.


We reduce our risk of death-by-cookbook-avalanche, you get some great books, and the Mustard Seed Food Bank gets 100% of the proceeds. Win, win, win. Last year we raised over $500 cash for the cause, and with your help, we’ll do it again.


Cookbooks up for grabs are listed below. Check back during the week as titles may be added. This year, books will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Have you got a few cookbooks in good to excellent condition that you are ready to part with? Add them to our table and we’ll include them in the sale. (Email us the titles you’re bringing and we’ll add them to the list). Disclaimer: all titles subject to availability. To avoid disappointment, arrive early.


The countdown is on! Find us at the Victoria Downtown Public Market Society Table at the Winter Market next Saturday, December 17th, from 11am – 3 pm. At Market Square.
