Around the World: Tweens and Teens Recipe Cards for Community Service

Earn community service by participating in the Library's Tweens & Teens Department Around the World: Recipe Card Community Service Project!

Volunteers can submit recipes representing their cultural heritage!

Each volunteer can submit up to 5 recipe cards.

Recipe cards and volunteer forms can be found at the Library.

Volunteers’ recipe cards will be available for other patrons to browse in the Tweens and Teens Room and may also be shared on the Library’s social media pages and website.

Volunteers must use the recipe cards provided by the Library to write their recipes on.

Volunteers must have previously made the dish they are submitting a recipe for and must include a review of the recipe in the form of coloring in stars on the recipe card (a recipe can receive up to 5 stars).

Recipes should be legible and written as neatly as possible.

All volunteers should cite the source in which they found the recipe on their recipe card (a source can be a cookbook or website, but can also be a family member or neighbor).

Volunteers must return a volunteer form with their recipe cards; volunteers do not have to submit all 5 recipe cards at once and should do an additional form for recipes they submit at a later date.

Recipes will be accepted until May 3, 2024.

Please return completed recipe cards and the volunteer form to the Community Service Drop-Off Box on the metal cabinet in the Tweens & Teens Room.
