buy a $10 raffle ticket from menu for hope

Menu for Hope is an annual fundraising campaign hosted by a revolving group of food bloggers around the world. Five years ago, the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia inspired them to find a way to help, and the very first Menu for Hope was born. The campaign has since become a yearly affair, raising funds to support worthy causes worldwide. In 2007, Menu for Hope raised nearly $100K to help the UN World Food Programme feed the hungry.

Each December, food bloggers from all over the world join the campaign by offering a delectable array of food-related prizes for the Menu for Hope raffle. Anyone can buy raffle tickets to bid on these prizes. 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.

The Menu for Hope V fundraiser runs from December 15-24.

Having only just come across the campaign this year, we haven't been able to offer a prize because we can currently only deliver locally in East & South East England. However we hope to get involved next year & will be buying a good few raffle tickets to be in with a chance of snaffling one of the fab prizes on offer!
