YOUNGSTOWN

The Facebook group Recipes of Youngstown has almost 10,000 members and has earned more than $100,000 from the sale of its two cookbooks.

The third cookbook, “From Mess Hall to Mom’s Kitchen,” is dedicated to military service members and will be published in May.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Youngstown State University Foundation to establish a scholarship fund for military veterans who are finishing their education at YSU.

The group will host a tasting session of several of the book’s recipes at the Tyler History Center, 325 W. Federal St., from noon to 4 p.m. May 13.

The event will feature a cobbler contest, a basket raffle and prizes. Tickets are $5, and proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund.

“From Mess Hall to Mom’s Kitchen” is $24, and can be ordered by calling the Mahoning Valley Historical Society at 330-743-2589, or visiting www.mahoninghistory.org.

The previous cookbooks also are available from the society, and the set of three can be purchased for $55.50.
