I joined BloggerAid awhile back because it is a really great cause, and which represents one I have helped support over the years in my restaurant industry days. I have volunteered many hours and donated much food on behalf of several restaurants that I have worked to help local food banks in New Orleans, LA. Now I have a chance to help the children of our future and our world by being a member of BloggerAid.
One of the first projects that BloggerAid has taken to task is to put together a cookbook of recipes from foodie bloggers and once it is published toward the end of 2009 all proceeds from the sales of the cookbook will go toward fighting hunger. In fact the great folks at BloggerAid announced that 100% of the profit from the sales of the cookbook will be directed to School Meals, the program of The World Food Programme (WFP), the United Nations frontline agency mentioned above.
For my contribution and as part of the cookbook I have entered one of my family favorite recipes, Cajun Meatballs and Spaghetti. I cannot divulge the ingredients at this time and until the cookbook is available, so be on the look out for when the cookbook makes it’s public appearance! I hear sometime around November or December of this year.
And for all foodie bloggers out there, if you are interested in getting one of your favorite recipes published in the “Children Are The Future” BloggerAid cookbook, check out the BloggerAid blog post You may now start submitting recipes for the Cookbook!!
