  3. FREE Food Sampling and Launch of RSVP's Cookbook
    "The Gift of Cooking... With Love" - the tagline of our cookbook. Most of the contributors are RSVP's own Senior Volunteers, while a few are our invited guest contributors. The common thread that binds this collection of recipes is that they are painstakingly prepared with love. Sample the dishes in the cookbook!
