All recipe submissions will then be compiled into a free eBook ready to download by Christmas Eve for the community to share and enjoy. Community members who participate will also be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift card for groceries. The winner will be announced on Christmas day.

“In my family, it is customary practice to demonstrate love to others by cooking for them.  Our city has generations of families which include some great cooks and this holiday season will be a great time to highlight family traditions and creativity. Furthermore, this recipe book will allow our community to connect through a universal outlet - food. I look forward to seeing all of the recipes and encourage everyone to try out a few this season," said Mayor Wells-Armstrong.
