From their website: “The Dolkas Award is a competitive research grant awarded annually for original projects that promote the understanding of the history of the Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay Area both in the area of intellectual research (publishing: writing/photographic, video, voice) and material structure (objects/buildings).”
Our project researching the history of foods that defined Santa Cruz County fits perfectly into this mission. Funds will be used to cover our expenses in recipe testing, traveling research and interviewing.
This is huge vote of support by our community. Thank you to the History Forum members for selecting the Heritage Food Project!
