Menu for Hope 4

It's that time of year again, when my very favorite* charity raffle occurs. The cause is good, the price is good, and best of all are the prizes! Chez Pim's Menu for Hope is a huge international undertaking, with prizes donated by foodie bloggers, chefs, cooking schools, and others working in and around the world of food. The beneficiary is the UN World Food Program, this year specifically targeting a school feeding program in Lesotho.

The prizes are amazing, ranging from spices boxes to cookbooks to cooking lessons to cases of wine to multi-course menus at major restaurants. Prizes are divided up into regional lists since many can only be collected from a particular location. Others can be shipped worldwide. (Scroll down on this post for a list of the regional hosts.)

For each US$10 you donate via this raffle, you can choose one ticket towards one prize. Go and browse - there're lots of tempting things on there.

And it's only on for another two days, until the 21st of December.

* I'm biased, in part, since I've lucked out two years running and won things through it - the first time a cookbook, the second time lunch in France!
