Cookbook launch for Meals on Wheels
Rockland — A book launch to celebrate the publication of “The Community Table” cookbook will be held Friday, Oct. 5 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the David Scriven Crowley Gallery, 409 Main St. Coinciding with the city’s First Friday art walk, “The Community Table” book launch will benefit MCH Meals on Wheels.
“The Community Table” features recipes from 100 home cooks, local chefs and celebrities from across the Midcoast. Interwoven with recipes are portraits and stories from Meals on Wheels recipients and volunteers taken by acclaimed photographer Patrisha McLean of Camden.
Every week, Mondays through Fridays, for more than 40 years, MCH Meals on Wheels has delivered 100 hot meals to senior citizens across Knox County. For many seniors, this is the only meal they will have all day. Meals on Wheels is a key program of MCH, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping older adults, people with disabilities and other at-risk groups maintain their independence and mobility in the communities they chose to live. Thanks to the support of many local businesses who sponsored “The Community Table,” all cookbook sales will help MCH Meals on Wheels prepare and deliver more hot meals to seniors in the community. Cookbook sponsors include Camden National Bank, Don and Patrisha McLean, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Co., Leslie Trudeau & Robert J. Fillnow, The Free Press, Black Parrot/Fog Bar & Cafe, Good Tern Natural Foods Co-op & Café, Hawthorn Inn, O’Hara Corporation and Mr. and Mrs. James Matlack.
“The Community Table Cookbook” is for sale in Rockland at Hello Hello Books, Reading Corner and Sweets & Meats; and in Camden at the Bagel Cafe.
