Chez Pim has announced the results of the fourth annual Menu for Hope raffle, which wound up raising $91,188 to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme, the world’s largest food aid agency. This is 50% higher than last year’s total, so way to go! A big thanks to Pim and all the organizers, the other food bloggers who offered prizes, and especially to everyone who bought raffle tickets. It’s an excellent start to the new year, and the school lunch program in Lesotho, Africa will benefit from your generosity.
Evidently the Lunch in a Box bento prize was a popular one with lots of bids, and the lucky winner is Mrs. Nicole A. H. Congratulations Nicole! Drop me a line and let me know where to send your bento starter kit, and see if we can line up a time to get together for your personal tour of San Francisco’s Japantown.
