A menu for hope...

$15, 000.00



Okay, I give up... for an up-to-the minute tally of how much the food blogging community has raised for the UN World Food Programme, check out the donation page.

What? In the unlikely event that you've missed the excitement and have no idea what I'm talking about, allow me to explain. Now in its third year, Menu for Hope is Pim Techamuanvivit's brainchild -- and the food blogging community's opportunity to step forward and make have a real impact on world hunger. Last year's event raised over $17,000 for UNICEF. And we're well on our way to $30,000.00 in 2006.

How does it work? Food bloggers from around the world have donated a collection of wonderful prizes. An unforgettable meal at Manresa or an afternoon coffee with *the* Thomas Keller. Autographed cookbooks from some of the world's most famous chefs and foodies. A handful of interesting classes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences sure to expand your culinary horizons.

A ten dollar donation gives you a virtual raffle ticket for the prize of your choice.


Check out all the wonderful prizes Pim and her team have lined up for you. Pick one or two or ten you can't live without.

Then head over to the donation page and follow the simple instructions for making your contribution and selecting your prize(s).

But hurry. The campaign ends on December 22. There are only a few days left to get in on the action. And to make a difference during this season of giving.

The original goal for Menu for Hope III was $25,000.00. The program's well on its way to doubling that. Help us make that happen.
