Introducing The Kitchen Cupboard…


Local foods need local cooks, and local cooks need equipment!  We are proud to announce the creation of the Ashtabula Cooks! Kitchen Cupboard, an equipment bank and lending library designed to benefit students of the Ashtabula Cooks! program.  Do you have gently used or new equipment that’s in good working order AND in need of a good home?  Visit here to learn how you can donate.


The Local Foods Challenge is Here!


Ashtabula Local Food Council Invites You to Celebrate Ohio Local Foods Week!

Can you spend $10 on Local Foods in Ashtabula County? Join us at county farmers markets to meet the Local Foods Challenge!

Beginning August 13, 2016, Ashtabula County Farmers Markets will host a raffle to celebrate Ohio Local Foods Week.   We will draw one winner to receive the grand prize $50 Ashtabula County Farmers Market Gift Certificate!

There are THREE easy ways to enter:

  • Purchase $10 in Local Foods from a participating market vendor and receive a FREE raffle ticket!
  • Find the market manager and purchase a raffle ticket for $1! All proceeds will be split between Ashtabula County Food Pantries and the Ashtabula Cooks! Project, aimed at teaching cooking skills and seasonal eating to Ashtabula County residents.
  • Donate a new or gently used piece of cooking equipment (crock pots, cookware, bakeware) to Ashtabula Local Food Council’s Equipment Bank. We’ll be using this equipment in the Ashtabula Cooks! Classes and sending it home with students that need it. Everyone who donates at Ashtabula Farmers Market (August 14th) or Geneva Farmers Market (August 13th) will receive 1 raffle ticket!

Raffle winners will be chosen on August 14th! The $50 gift certificates are good at any of the Ashtabula County Farmers Markets.
