April Food Day
Since starting this blog I have meet, mostly in cyberspace, many interesting people. One of them, Anthenaeus asked me if I would join him and other bloggers in supporting April Food Day. Food bloggers, who are sometimes too obsessed with food in all it forms, are an ideal group to draw people's attention to those whose preoccupation with food is not what they have eaten or will eat but simply how to feed themselves and their family. Today's dramatic economic times mean that many more people are finding themselves in dire straits through no fault of their own. Take a look at Athenaeus's blog if you live in the US to see what you can do to help. As I am based in Toronto Canada, I suggest you send a donation to The Daily Bread Food Bank they are running a spring drive, more and more people need help as the price of food continues to rise. Those readers living elsewhere please make an effort to find your local equivalent. No one should have to make the choice between paying the rent and putting the food on the table, be generous.
