After all, health is much more than a fair-weather state of mind—it’s a mission. At least that’s the case for City of St. Petersburg Deputy Mayor and City Administrator Dr. Kanika Tomalin. A health advocate for the City of St. Petersburg and her family, Dr. Tomalin has made strides to make community health a priority for thousands of St. Pete residents. In 2015, she launched her signature initiative, Healthy St. Pete, which focuses on creating access to healthy food options, implementing free fitness zones in city parks and adding resources for individuals and families to make healthy living easier. This cookbook echoes Healthy St. Pete’s initiative for a sustainable lifestyle for the current residents of the St. Pete and generations to come.
Proceeds from cookbooks purchased from the website will go towards the City of St. Petersburg’s Fighting Chance Fund, which provides grants to locally-owned and independently-operated small businesses and their employees that have been negatively impacted due to COVID-19.
Proceeds from cookbooks purchased at participating local businesses will go directly to the local business.
