The Hunger Challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Food Bank is for bloggers and their readers to try, even for one meal, to eat on $1 a person a meal and then share the experience. The formal challenge begins September 21, but I got a head start and I can tell you the experience has changed me in a number of ways, one of those is to make me much more an anti-hunger activist than I already was. (To read about my initial experience, please click here.)
Please consider donating to the San Francisco Food Bank. Just click on the Hunger Challenge badge above. Every $1 you give buys $9 in food. To make donating even more enticing, Amy of Cooking with Amy has donated 12 cookbooks to go to the first 12 donors from this challenge donating $50 or more. To qualify, click on the badge/link above to go to the donation page. Fill out the necessary info and make a donation of $50 or more.
About two thirds of the way down the form, look for a header that says, “Food Drive/Event Information. Use the drop-down box to select “Bloggers Hunger Challenge.” Be one of the first 12 people to donate $50 or more and you’ll receive a free cookbook as a thank-you.
Other bloggers participating in this challenge besides Cooking with Amy are the newsletter from La Petit Appetit, Vanessa Barrington, Been There At That, and the Inadvertent Gardner.
Here is a slide show prepared by the San Francisco Food Bank showing some of the behind the scenes and clients it serves.
