First Book Volunteers in Action: Trumbull County's Edible Books

There is no question that we love delicious food and a great book. So, it comes as no surprise that one of our favorite First Book volunteer fundraisers is First Book-Trumbull County’s annual Edible Book Art Festival fundraising event. For the past three years, participants have been challenged to create an art piece out of 100% edible material representing a classic or current children’s book, and festival attendees make a donation to vote on their favorite entries. Yummy!

This delicious fundraiser raised hundreds of dollars that funded grants that provide books for local children in need.  We are inspired by the ingenuity and creativity of our many wonderful advisory boards across the country.
