Menu for Hope is a yearly charitable Food Blogging event started by Chez Pim in 2004. Following on from last year, Pim has chosen to continue to support the school lunch program in Lesotho through the World Food Programme. This particular school lunch programme was chosen as our beneficiary because it not only provides the food that keeps the children alive, it helps them stay in school so that they learn the skills to feed themselves in the future. Lesotho is a model programme in local procurement - buying food locally to support local farmers and the local economy. Instead of shipping surplus corn across the ocean, the WFP is buying directly from local subsistent farmers who practice conservation farming methods in Lesotho to feed the children there. I hope you will join me in ensuring the success of this year's Menu for Hope.
Prize Code UW13: This year I am giving you double the chance to win - I am giving away not one, but two lowelego sweep sets as my prize this year. The two winners of this easy-to-set-up background set, the perfect starter kit for food bloggers who want to photograph tabletop shots of small items against a smooth background without a visible edge, will discover that the kit comes complete with a range of colored sheets that you can use straight out of the box. This prize can be shipped anywhere in the world, but please note that because of the size, it would most likely be shipped surface, not air.
