Menu for Hope

Helen at Grab Your Fork is again running the Asia-Pacific section of Menu for Hope. Last year, food bloggers (and their readers) from around the world raised more than US$60,000 (up from $17,000 the year before - if things increase at the same rate, they're looking at nearly a quarter of a million dollars this year!) for the UN World Food Program. This year, the money is once again going to the World Food Program, but is being specifically earmarked for a school lunch program in Lesotho. Read all about it over at the home of Menu for Hope, Chez Pim.

It's all pretty simple: food bloggers source and donate prizes, their readers buy raffle tickets, the money raised is donated to help feed the hungry and lucky entrants end up winning fabulous prizes. It's a win-win situation. The Asia-Pacific prize list is at Grab Your Fork and the complete list is at Chez Pim. So click on through and buy a few tickets. Good luck!
