Waldoboro Public Library has been selected as a benefiting nonprofit of the “fresh Cookbook” fundraiser at Hannaford for the month of December.

The “fresh Cookbook” was released in July and contains the best fresh Magazine recipes that Hannaford customers have enjoyed for years. These recipes are perfect for everyday cooking and special occasions. In addition to delicious recipes, the cookbook offers a little "frosting on the cake" for local communities — every “fresh Cookbook” purchased generates a $5 donation to support the critical work of nonprofit organizations working to eliminate childhood hunger and improve child nutrition. In addition, each cookbook contains $15 in coupons for products shoppers can find at Hannaford stores.

Hannaford has selected many nonprofit organizations to receive local store donations each month through this fundraiser. For every “fresh Cookbook” purchased at the Waldoboro Hannaford during December, the library will receive a $5 donation.

“We are pleased to be included in this new fundraiser at Hannaford,” said Library Director Cathrina Skov. “We will use the funds raised to add to our collection of large print books, which are more expensive than regular books so our budget doesn’t have the funds to buy many of these each year. Our patrons who rely on large print will enjoy a boost in the selection.”
