Ashley Oden was teaching cultural projects in her sixth grade Language Arts class, and she along with her class, decided to create a multi-cultural cook book. It’s called Feed Me Differently.

It focuses on recipes from Africa, Mexico, and America. Sales have gone so well they decided to donate some of the proceeds to the East Texas Food Bank. The food bank received a $300 check.

    More than 297,000 Americans have lost their lives due to the coronavirus. But it’s not just a statistic. One special project, “The Faces of COVID,” is putting a face, a name, and a heart to those we’ve lost. Jason Johnson spoke with Alex Goldstein, the man behind the tributes, about his work to honor and remember those who’ve died. “It was really about lifting up the dignity and being willing to say and shout out loud the names of the people we’re losing every single day,” Goldstein said.

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) joined Jason Johnson to discuss where Congress stands on a Coronavirus relief bill, as millions of Americans are set to lose benefits at the end of the month. Rep. Waters also commented on the 126 Republicans who backed a failed Texas lawsuit to overturn the election, and the pressure surrounding California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s pick to fill Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris’ Senate seat.




“We made the cookbook and we started thinking, kind of on a larger scale, what we could do with it that would help people in our community. So we started selling them at campus to raise money for the East Texas Food Bank, and it just kind of took off from there,” Oden said.

The cookbook is mainly based on family recipes. If you’d like a copy of the cookbook contact Judson Middle School.
