The East End Life Community website recently cooked up a fundraiser to help out Community Centre 55.

Organized by area resident and local realtor Cori Endrody, of Forest Hill Real Estate Inc., a cookbook filled with recipes submitted by local residents was created and sold to benefit Community Centre 55 and its many outreach programs in the East Toronto area.

Sales of the East End Life Community Cookbook were brisk over the holiday season, and Endrody presented a cheque for $2,500 to Community Centre 55 Executive Director Debbie Visconti on Jan. 12.

Endrody said that all orders for the cookbook were received online and copies were delivered directly in a manner that observed COVID-19 safety protocols.

The content of the book also featured photos taken free of charge by local photographers and the printing was subsidized by local printer Mail Slot, said Endrody.
