Sunflower Natural Foods' Community Cookbook now available

LACONIA —  Locally owned Sunflower Natural Foods announced that its Community Cookbook is available for sale. A Cookbook Release Party will be held at Sunflower this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.

Sunflower owner Ana Gourlay wanted to create a way to contribute to the food pantries and knew that by including the community, the contribution will be much larger than what the store could offer on its own. 100% of the profits made from cookbook sales will be directly donated to local food pantries to help feed families in need this holiday season. If every cookbook is sold, Sunflower will be able to donate $2,600.

For a year, Sunflower has been collecting recipes from community members and local businesses like Kitchen Cravings, Awakenings Café, and Tomina's Cookie Dough. The cookbook includes 80 healthy recipes from breakfasts to desserts, summer salads to a holiday roast and can be purchased for only $8.

Those interested in purchasing a cookbook can do so throughout the holidays at Sunflower Natural Foods, 390 South Main Street, Laconia.

Sunflower Natural Foods has been a community resource for natural foods and alternative health therapies since 1985. In 1999, Ana Gourlay, an employee of five years, purchased the store from its original owner. In 2009, Gourlay combined Sunflower with Terra Perma, an eco-friendly gift store also under her ownership, to create one comprehensive green-living store. Sunflower is dedicated to supporting the local economy and maintaining a responsible relationship with its community and the environment. For more information, visit http://www.SunflowerNH.com
