Menu for Hope III: 3 days left!

Hunger and malnutrition are still the number one risks to health worldwide. 852 million is the total number of undernourished people worldwide: 815 in developing countries, 28 million in countries in transition and nine million in industrialised countries. Today, one in nearly seven people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life, making hunger and malnutrition the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

The Menu for Hope campaign will be running for three more days so if you're thinking about participating and help UN World Food Programme , there is still a little bit of time but do it soon!

So far, we have more than doubled last year's record of $17,000, and have raised over $35,000! Thanks to all of you!

Thank you, so much catherine. I am gladly the lucky winner of the two reference books. My shipping address is 832 21st St. Hermosa Beach, CA 90254. I really enjoyed the process of watching, engaging, choosing and contributing for the ten+ days. I bid on this prize first because I have wanted the "companion" for many years. We are so lucky to have the internet and people like you in our world these days. The wealth of information available to us now is overwhelming and makes our quest for joy in food and wine attainable. Maybe even every night.
Thank you, again. David
