Recipes Project

The Centerville-Washington Diversity Council has cooked up a fun and flavorful way to celebrate diversity. The council is looking for recipes that reflect the diversity in our community — ethnic, religious and national. Recipes are compiled and shared on this website.

“Our community expresses its diversity in many ways – through our customs, our language, and our social activities, to name a few. One of the most fun aspects of diversity, and certainly the most flavorful, is the food we eat,” said Jackie Curl, Diversity Council Past Chair.

The recipe project is intended to raise awareness about diversity and to honor the diversity within our community. Contributors are asked to submit a family recipe, as well as any anecdotes or history surrounding it, although the Diversity Council welcomes recipes with or without memories and stories attached.

Recipe submissions are accepted from anyone who lives or works in Centerville or Washington Township. Local restaurants and food stores are also encouraged to participate. Contributors are welcome to supply more than one recipe.

To submit a favorite recipe, download and print a Recipe Form from this website, fill it out, and mail it along with your recipe to the address on the form.
