Stark County

Cultural Cookbook

Celebrating Culture through Cooking

Share your recipe. Share your traditions. Share your story.

We are 4 middle schoolers from Stark County, Ohio passionate about learning about different cultures, celebrating the beautiful diversity in Stark County, and EATING GOOD FOOD! (We love good food).

We believe the best way to discover new cultures, break down stereotypes, and build empathy for others is by sharing delicious food and conversation together. Our goal is to create a cookbook that shares the personal stories and cultural recipes of diverse people from our home - Stark County. Our hope is that this cookbook will be full of meaningful stories and delicious recipes that raise awareness of the diversity in our community!
