Here on the site, we talk about food. A lot.
Especially when it comes to Chocolate Rum Cake.
But seriously, I was fortunate to be born in a country with lots of food. And living in Paris, I’m doubly-lucky and there’s plenty around for me to eat whenever I want. And believe me, I do.
Unfortunately that’s a priviledge that I take for granted.
Like many of us do.
But each year ten million people die from hunger and hunger-related disease. Ten million!
So for this year’s Menu For Hope III the charity organization will be the UN World Food Programme. Last year a whopping $17,000 was raised during the auction. Once again, this year Pim has organized our third annual auction, and this year promises to be bigger than ever, with some top-name food celebrities and food bloggers worldwide offering items.
So, what can you do?
If you have a food blog or food-related web site, contact the host or hostess in your area (listed below) right away to donate. If you live in Europe, contact me.
If you’re a reader, tune in December 11-22, when the blogs below will list the fabulous, amazing items offered ’round the world. You’ll be able to buy virtual raffle tickets for all the stupendous prizes and at the same time, you’ll be assisting those who are going hungry worldwide.
I’m not allowed to let on some of the great things offered, including something terrific from me, but there’ll be many gastronomic items that are once-in-a-lifetime culinary experiences…so stay tuned!
Here’s a list of this year’s hosts and hostesses:
