Last year Abilene’s Dusty Hudgins found is mother’s cookbook from 1962 featuring favored recipes of Abilene ISD cafeteria workers in the 1950s and 1960s. After posting a photo of the original book interest grew and the Hudgins reprinted the books and sold them with funds going to charity.

Now he has a website dedicated to the book and the continuing mission to make a difference in his community through his mother’s recipes.

We talk with Hudgins about the book and what it is doing to help people in Abilene and the surrounding areas.
