SFS Nutritional Reads is hosting a unique fundraising event that will offset the publishing costs for our 1st cookbook entitled “From Food Pantry to Table”, which will be published in early 2020. We are projecting a distribution of as few as 1600 cookbooks, but our hopes are to distribute as many as demand makes possible to at least 30 food pantries in the Knoxville – Knox County area starting in early 2020 through November 2021.
