It’s MENU FOR HOPE time again!
Pim, of the excellent blog CHEZ PIM, is the motor behind this beautiful ship, so I’ll let her words tell you all about where the money raised will go:
This year’s Menu for Hope will again benefit the school lunch program in Lesotho, as well as support the WFP’s local procurement initiative, which contracts local farmers to grow food to supply the feeding program. We chose to support the school lunch program because providing food for the children not only keeps them alive, but keeps them in school so that they learn the skills to feed themselves in the future. We chose to support the program in Lesotho because it is a model program 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.
So how does it work? For every $10 donated, you earn one virtual raffle ticket to bid on a prize of your choice. At the end of the two-week campaign, the raffle tickets are drawn and the results announced on Chez Pim.
How do you make these donations? Go to this page on Firstgiving. We’ve also provided a step-by-step guide at the bottom of this post on how to enter.
