Are you with us? Some where in Lesotho, Africa a child will eat lunch with our help. Each December the food and wine blogging community come together on line to raise money to help those less fortunate than us.
We are again supporting the WFP, but this year the funds raised by
Menu for Hope 4 will be specifically earmarked for a school feeding
program in Lesotho, Africa. We chose to support the school lunch
programme because feeding the kids mean keeping them in school,
especially the girls who would otherwise be kept at home to work. We
chose the support this particular program in Lesotho because the WFP
is making a concerted effort in procuring food from local farms to
supply the feeding program. Feed the kids, keep them in school, and
support their parents farming. This is truly a winning proposition.
I am unable to donate this year as we are in the middle of moving home to Australia after 35 years in New Zealand. I'll be buying lots of tickets though. Check out the blogs below to see a list of the prizes and how to buy a ticket. Good luck.
