"Dining Delicacies: A+ Recipes from District 203 Employees," a cookbook aimed at raising money for a memorial literacy fund, is now in its second printing. The price of the book is $15. All proceeds benefit the Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy, established in 1996 by friends and faculty of River Woods School along with other members of the district, in memory of the 10-year-old Naperville girl who was abducted from her home and murdered in 1983.
The mission of the foundation is to acquire and distribute resources that promote a deeper understanding of literacy and provide enriched literacy opportunities for the learners within the Naperville community.

The fund awards grants to educators in the two public school districts, as well as the private schools in Naperville, who work to strengthen literacy.

The 410-page cookbook, edited by Kris Hartman, includes 10 categories of recipes.

Minuteman Press donated all the printing for both editions of the book.

The book is available at Anderson's Bookshop, 123 W. Jefferson Ave., and Minuteman Press, 1577 N. Naperville Road, in Naperville.
