How much of the purchase is donated to JFSLA?

  • 100% of the proceeds (about $25 per book) will be donated to JFSLA, and earmarked for Food & Hunger Programs specifically. 

  • The only expenses not donating are the manufacturing costs. The book recipes and images were all donated by the chefs and community members, and the book was compiled and designed for free by members of the JFSLA Young Leaders Executive Committee. All marketing and fulfillment is completed by volunteers. 

  • Any shipping costs are not included in the donation amount, and are an extra fee paid by the customer.
