All proceeds from the cookbook will benefit AGSF.  AGSF provides financial assistance to deserving mothers in the Davidson and greater Charlotte, NC area who are suffering from a debilitating disease or other unforeseen health challenge.  AGSF also supports research organizations searching for a cure for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), like Project ALS and The ALS Association Jim “Catfish” Hunter chapter.  AGSF is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

AGSF was founded in 2008, soon after Laura Woodall of Davidson, NC was diagnosed with ALS. Mrs. Woodall quickly realized that one of the most challenging parts of living with disease is the toll it can take on the family, mainly due to the new financial pressures that come with ongoing  health issues. That realization prompted her to take action and ask friends to form A Giving Spirit Foundation.

When Mrs. Woodall learned of the upcoming “Feeding Your Spirit” fundraiser, she and her family were eager to submit recipes of their own and they are found throughout the cookbook. “I remember getting a thrill from hosting our extended family for the holidays. Every step from making my grocery list, going to the grocery store, to baking anything ahead of time was as if it was my fulfilling challenge to do this for a wonderful holiday meal together.  By mid-afternoon we could all sit, feast, tell stories from the past, laugh, indulge in seconds, talk more, laugh more, and eventually have room for dessert. That time together was everything I'd hoped for –cooking leading to a sweet victory for everyone!”

Join us at  Main Street Books for the AGSF Feeding Your Spirit Cookbook Launch Party!  Pick up your pre-ordered copy or purchase your copy for $15.00 on Tuesday, May 1, from  6 – 8 p.m.
