Menu for Hope 2007

12 December 2007

Menu For Hope is an annual fundraiser put together by food bloggers around the globe to raise money for a world cause — the U.N. World Food Programme, and this year a school lunch program in Lesotho, Africa — which runs December 10-24. For every US$10 donated, the donor receives a virtual raffle ticket toward a prize of his or her choice. The full list of raffle prizes is here.

My contribution to this very worthy cause is a coffee package from San Francisco — specifically, a delicious 1/2 pound of Blue Bottle coffee made right here in the Bay area, a pretty new mug to drink it in, and a yummy home-made baked good such as the cupcake above (made to specific dietary restrictions, ie: vegan, gluten-free, extra butter, etc.) or a batch of cookies, or or or.

Please go to Firstgiving.com to donate and check out all the fab prizes. If you’d like a little bit of love from the West Coast, enter enter code UW35 — but definitely look around at all the other amazing things offered.

The winners of each raffle prize will be announced Wednesday January 9 on
Chez Pim.

Thank you so much for participating!
