“Cookin’ on the Square” is an annual fundraiser for the Putman County, Tennessee, Habitat for Humanity. Heavenly Host Lutheran Church and School has participated in the event for several years. Typically, the event is the last Friday in October. Cookeville’s historic downtown square is transformed into a Cajun culinary destination with live music and more than 75 teams preparing gumbo, jambalaya, red beans and rice. The proceeds go to the Putnam County Habitat for Humanity. We help local families build and BUY affordable homes. Heavenly Host cares for our community.
