Support Powerline Workers


TASTE OF BOLIVIA. Cooperative Living magazine reader Denisse Rueda-Mendivil of Stephens City, Virginia, was surprised to read about 15 electric cooperative lineworkers from Virginia and Maryland traveling to the South American country of Bolivia to help bring electricity for the first time to several villages — including Rueda-Mendivil’s birthplace of Oruro.

She reached out to us through here, Cooperative Living’s Facebook page, saying, “The people in Oruro are kind and have amazing culinary skills. It would be a disservice not to point out the many delicious things they [the lineworkers] could eat! I could write about Oruro forever. It is a small and magical place! And while Virginia has been my home for over 20 years, where my children were born and where we have made so many wonderful memories, Oruro will always have a place in my heart.”

Many thanks to Rueda-Mendivil for graciously sharing the following Bolivian recipes: www.co-opliving.com/food/cooperative-kitchen/
