Cookbook sale helps fill local food pantries

LaGRANGE — Farmers State’s Best Cookbook, a collection from current employees, the board of directors and retirees of Farmers State Bank, contains more than 445 recipes. Over the past several months, FSB branches have been selling the cookbooks to raise money for local food pantries.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to local food pantries in FSB markets in northeast Indiana and southwest Michigan. Thanks to customers and neighbors, $13,000 has been raised to help feed hungry families this holiday season, according to FSA officials.

Farmers State Bank is also donating its costs from the creation and printing of the cookbook.

 The cookbook committee of Amy Beer, Dee Helmkamp, Kathi Miller, Nichole Marple and Marj Noll helped make all of these donations possible.
