Reading for eating

Other projects in the works for the magazine include fundraisers by local nonprofit organizations such as the Girl Scouts and using local schools as a way to sell the magazine.

Felicia Lerner, director of Culinary Kids portion of the magazine, said, "We are trying to get the schools involved with Culinary Kids as a fundraiser." The fundraiser would work so that when the magazine was sold, the schools and nonprofits would get $2 alongside the $2 for the Food Bank.

Laura Cassidy, the vice president of member services of the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce said, "It is exciting to see something new of this caliber brought to this region because I think the region can support a magazine on restaurants that you might only see in a more cosmopolitan setting. It speaks to the vibrancy of the area."

The magazine will be available for purchase at local grocery and bookstores by the end of July and nonprofit organizations can also help to provide for the Food Bank by selling the magazine as it comes out quarterly.""
