"Once again we've chosen to work with the UN World Food Programme. WFP is the world’s largest food aid agency, working with over 1,000 other organizations in over 75 countries. In addition to providing food, the World Food Program helps hungry people to become self-reliant so that they escape hunger for good.
With a special permission from the WFP, the funds raised by Menu for Hope 4 will be earmarked for the school lunch program in Lesotho, Africa. 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 can you help?
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 (December 10-21), the raffle tickets are drawn and the results announced on Chez Pim.
Like what kind of prizes?
How about a chance to meet Thomas Keller, Harold McGee, or Ferran Adrià? Or maybe a dinner of a life time at a Michelin starred restaurant? Or better yet, the opportunity to work in the kitchen and learn from great chefs like Grant Achatz. All of these have been or will be items raffled for the event.
Unfortunately, we here at GFC don't have that kind of pull. However...
So a special thanks goes out to Morgan Ranch for providing us with the following two amazing items to be raffled off.
Morgan Ranch Wagyu Sirloin Sizzler Pack - $150 value**
PRIZE CODE: UC02
Morgan Ranch Wagyu Carving Roast - $100 value**
PRIZE CODE: UC03
**Both include free 2nd day shipping within the continental US.
So now what?
Check out the 150+ items up for raffle benefiting Menu for Hope 4. Pay attention to the prize code listed next to the item(s) you want to win. Once you decide which buckets you want your tickets to go into, go to the donation site and follow the instructions. I'll post a winners announcement when it becomes available on January 9th.
Good luck and thank you in advance to all who donate. Happy holidays to all!
