  • Beaver Valley Community School, Clarksburg

A complete list is available on the Community Cookbook blog. (

In addition, 10 percent of the sale of each book is set aside into a fund for local initiatives. To date, there is $4,000 set aside to help grow or create local programming, specifically with youth and local food in mind.
