I don't think there's a food blogger out there who doesn't have a deep and personal relationship with food. It's the very essence of what we do, and we love it enough to devote our time to learning more about it. But we're the lucky ones - we can go to the grocery store and load up our carts with whatever we want.
Every year, Food Bloggers from all over the world get together for a fundraising campaign. We call it 'Menu for Hope'. Last year, they raised $17,000 to help UNICEF.This year, Menu for Hope III is raising funds to support the UN World Food Programme, which provides hunger relief for needy people worldwide. So far this year, they've raised over $34,000.
This "Menu for Hope" is our small way to help.On the menu this year is a great list of amazing food related prizes. We hope that they will entice you to give whatever you can, and with some luck you can win unique and wonderful food gifts offered up by food bloggers from around the world.The rule is pretty easy. For every US$10 you donate, you may claim one raffle ticket toward a prize of your choice. The more you give, the better your chance to win. The campaign is scheduled to run from now until Friday 22nd, 6PM PST. So get a move on!
There are some seriously excellent prizes this year - vouchers for $350-$400 at some excellent restaurants, bottles of wine, and all sorts of cookbooks, tools, and food from all over the world. It's definitely worth checking it out, and definitely worth spending a few dollars towards a good cause.
