Giving Back During MoFo: Project Feed Me

null

Hey friends, please bear with me while I use my daily MoFo post to draw attention to something pretty fantastic that’s going on in the blogosphere. It’s about food, so hey – I’m using my MoFo banner and calling it acceptable. ;)

In case you haven’t heard, Natalie at NoNo2YoYo is organizing a wonderful nine-week program designed to help feed families in need during the upcoming holiday season. The concept of Project Feed Me is pretty simple. Every Monday during the program, Natalie will post a list of recommended food items that food banks nationwide need. Participants will purchase at least two of these items per week, and when the nine weeks are up, everyone will donate the food to a local food bank. Not too difficult, right? But Natalie’s really kicking the project into high gear by asking that every participant commit to recruiting at least three more people to participate in Project Feed Me. If everyone at least tries to spread the word, the number of people who participate could be pretty impressive. Check out Natalie’s Project Feed Me page for a FAQ section and more information on the project, including a seriously awe-inspiring chart showing just how much food we could gather if we commit to recruiting participants and work to rally the troops. ;)

During this merry month o’ MoFo, when we blog all about the delicious food we eat and the restaurants we visit, maybe we also need to step back and consider how lucky we are to be able to live this lifestyle, to put yummy food in our bellies, and to have computers and internet access that enables us to blog about said food. How many people are have no idea what – or if – they’ll eat next? And for how many people would the idea of blogging about food just seem purposeless, when they’re struggling to eat? If you step back and think about that, it’s pretty humbling. It seems to me that Project Feed Me is the perfect accompaniment to MoFo, and I’ll proudly participate throughout the next nine weeks, even after MoFo is done and my poor little fingers are worn down from blogging so consistently. I encourage all of you to do the same and to spread the word about this great idea. So, what are you waiting for? Head over here to register for Project Feed Me and to be part of something great. :)
